Genesis Ch. 1-3 创世纪 第一至三章

Lesson 1 God of Creation

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen. 1:1

We Praise you God (Hebrew EL):

  1.        … for you existed before time… timeless, with no beginning or end
  2.        … for you existed before creation … ever-present God
  3.       … for you are the creator of heavens and earth (Neh. 9:6)
  4.        … for you are the creator of both visible and invisible (Col.1:16)
  5.        … for you created all things by your powerful Word/ Jesus Christ you Son (Jn. 1:1-4)
  6.        … for you created all things by your Holy Spirit (Ps. 104:30)
  7.        … for you created us as firstfruits, brand new and not refurbished
  8.        … for you created us from nothing (Isaiah 40:26)
  9.        … for you are our creator…created, formed, and made (Isaiah 43:7)
  10.    … for you have created us by your will to have our being (Rev. 4:11)

Our Father God we acknowledge that we are created by you:

  1.        … to worship you for giving us life (Neh. 9:6)
  2.        … to worship you along with the multitude of heavenly hosts (Neh. 9:6)
  3.        … to record your deeds for the yet to be born to praise you (Ps. 102:18)
  4.        … to praise you for at your command we were created (Ps. 148:5)
  5.        … for your glory to call on your name as our creator (Isa. 43:7)
  6.        … with new birth to be like you in righteousness and holiness (Eph. 4:24)
  7.        … to be holy and blameless in your sight (Eph. 1:4)
  8.        … to do good works, prepared in advance for us to do (Eph. 2:10)
  9.        … with new birth through the word of truth to be a kind of firstfruits over all creation (Jam. 1:18)

Father God we acknowledge that we have sinned against you:

  1.        … by worshiping & serving created things rather than our creator
  2.        … by going after schemes though we were created upright (Ecc. 7:29)
  3.        .. we are sorry for our known and unknown disobedience.

We ask you to restore us:

      1.       … our heart’s desire to worship you for giving us eternal life through Jesus Christ

    2.    … our heart’s desire to praise you for we have given birth by your mercy

    3.    … our heart’s desire to glorify you by calling on the name of Jesus Christ

   4.   … our heart’s desire to respond to your word of truth to live

a.       holy,

b.      blameless

c.       righteous lives by the power of the Holy Spirit

   5.    … our heart’s desire to do good works that you have prepared for us.
