Read It

Genesis is the first book in the Bible.  It is a book of beginnings.  So many truths are recorded there for our discovery, but we’ll only discover them if we prayerfully ask the Author to reveal them to us.

2 Timothy 3:16 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Genesis is the book of firsts. It’s the first time creation is mentioned. The reader also learns the fact that man can’t keep one commandment, let alone the hundreds of others recorded throughout the Scriptures. Salvation is pictured in the sacrificing of animals and the offering up of Isaac. We learn more about Abraham, who is the great illustration of how God chooses a man to represent all who come to God by responding to His call. In addition, the reader will meet Joseph and learn how one man can honor God in spite of tremendous challenges.

You should give it a read and see if you can find yourself in its pages.

Give it some thought.
