The Day of Rest

100_1471

Genesis 2: 1-3

“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating he had done.”

(We were always given at least one day a week to rest, simply as a gift)

The Sixth Day – Creation Ending

100_1837

Genesis 1:30-31

“And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning – the sixth day.

The Sixth Day – Part II

100_0191

Genesis 1:26-27

The God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
