I commend two outstanding resources that will equip you in understanding Genesis 1-2. These two resources will encourage you to see how you interpret these chapters really matter.
“Is Creation a Second-Class Doctrine?” by John Macarthur (brief entry plus a 5 minute video that is worth your time)
Struggling with reading your Bible? A great quote to encourage you in this spiritual discipline:
We must to be diligent readers of our Bibles. The Word is the sword of the Spirit. We shall never fight a good fight, if we do not use it as our principal weapon. The Word is the lamp for our feet. We shall never keep the king’s highway to heaven, if we do not journey by its light. There is not enough Bible-reading among us. It is not sufficient to have the Book. We must actually read it, and pray over it ourselves. It will do us no good, if it only lies still in our houses. We must be actually familiar with its contents, and have its texts stored in our memories and minds. Knowledge of the Bible never comes by intuition. It can only be obtained by diligent, regular, daily, attentive, wakeful reading.
Happy Father’s Day!
I am eternally grateful to God today for my father–who is now in the everlasting presence of Christ. I am also humbled and awed by the task God has given me to be a father to three children. My wife and I love them dearly and are thankful for their hearts that are open to hearing and obeying God’s Word.
May God help us as fathers to renew our resolve this day to guard our hearts and the hearts of our children!
““Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children’s children— ” (Deuteronomy 4:9, ESV)
