Genesis 1:13-19

Genesis 1:13-19: And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. And God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. And God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

It was not until the third ‘day’ with its own evening and morning, that God actually fixed some incredible ‘lights’ in the expanse – yet more preparation for His most prized creation still to come. Now, once He created humankind, it could see the difference between day and night. Man could tell one ‘day’ was over and another day begun. He could tell what the next day was going to be like by watching these “lights” in the heavenly expanse. He could tell as he counted days that a new season was coming and the natural elements would change, time after time, year after year. Man could arrange his life around those lights. He was a most thoughtful Creator.

Later on, when humankind goes awry, that same Creator produced yet another Light and had Him “fixed” on a cross, allowing all of humankind to not only arrange their life around Him, but to actually have the ability to go on living forever because of Him.

Almost all would agree that the “greater” light is clearly the sun and the majority would agree that the “lesser” light is the earth’s moon. If so, then we face another startling concept. While I do not know about what else God has created, I do know that these incredible masterpieces were all in preparation for you and me. He created them to facilitate our existence in His world. The entire Bible focuses on His love affair with us. It relates His unmatchable actions on our behalf.
