11 Jun Life In The Spirit: Creation
Pastor Pete Hartwig
SLIDE: Life in the Spirit:
SLIDE: Spirit, Breath, Wind
SLIDE: The Beginning
Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
SLIDE: HUBBLE PICTURE. April 2010
A multi-wavelength view of a nebula, a star cluster and far-away galaxies.
How small we feel. Insignificant. Invisible. Nothing.
Psalm 8: 3-4 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them.
SLIDE: Formless and Empty: Toha and Boha
SLIDE: Formless and Empty
Futile, Empty, Meaningless
Function over Physical
SLIDE: the Spirit of the God was hovering
SLIDE: Day 1. Time
Day 2. Weather
Day 3. Food
God creates “functional systems” so man
LIVE and THRIVE!
SLIDE: It is GOOD.
Functioning! GOOD! It is working, Potential is being realized.
For what PEOPLE! HUMANKIND!
“It is not good for the man to be alone” (Gen 2:18).
God creates a place for humankind
to not only live… but to thrive.
SLIDE: ANGEL to MARY Luke 1:35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
SLIDE: Mary says YES! Luke 1:38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”
SLIDE: FEET to you FAITH
Academically Oriented People (Father, Son and Holy Spirit)
Dark, Empty, Meaningless
The Spirit still Hovers
