One of the most amazing attributes of God, and one which is passed down to us, is the ability to create. God, out of nothing, created the entire universe, everything we can see and many things that we can’t. Simply with the sound of his voice, the heavenly bodies found their origin. When he uttered the words, mountains rose into view and thousands of species of birds took flight. That beach you love to lounge on? Created in an instant. Your favorite animal? It was inspired by the mind of God.
It’s amazing to think that over six days, God put into motion all that there is. But did you know that he still creates today? He has the power to take you and literally make you new!
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
(2 Corinthians 5:17)
When we become one with Christ (Romans 6:3-8), he takes our old, sinful selves and banishes them once and for all (Hebrews 10:1-17). The decaying, broken-down, sinful person inside of you is made new. We are clothed with Christ (Galatians 3:27) and will be made like him at Christ’s return (1 John 3:2).
He still creates!
