The story of creation is an astounding demonstration of the power of God.
It does matter what we believe about origins. If we doubt the account of creation in Scripture we cast a shadow of doubt on the rest.
Colossians 1:16 – God demonstrates His power by interrupting the natural order.
Care for His people:
- 2 Kings 6:15-18
- 2 Chronicles 16:9
- Psalm 34:7
- Acts 23: 12-22
God’s power over…
- Hebrews 1:1-3 (sin)
- Acts 10:38 (disease and oppression)
- John 10:14-18 (death)
The power of Redemption:
- The Lord has made bare His holy arm!
- The gospel of Christ is the power of God for everyone unto salvation.
- 1 Corinthians 1:18
Transforming Power: Paul is a particularly good example of this power, especially his conversion story. Acts 26
Power to Forgive: Acts 7:60
People don’t really know the full impact of their sins against others… that should help us forgive. It should also help us to be more careful ourselves.
- Psalm 103:14
- 2 Corinthians 4:6,7
- 1 John 4:4
- Acts 1:8
- Romans 6
- Ephesians 3:20
We must yield ourselves to God to experience His goodness and power.
