Life In The Spirit: Creation

Pastor Pete Hartwig

Sermon Notes

SLIDE:  Life in the Spirit:

 

SLIDE: Creation

 

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
