Private Interpretation

Who Is God?

2 Timothy 3:14-15
“But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

Did you know that the Bible never tries to convince the reader that there is a God? As surprising as that sounds, it’s absolutely true. The Bible’s very first words begin by identifying God – but nowhere does the Bible try to prove there is a God.

Who is GodThe first verse of Genesis reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Here we learn that the God of the Bible is our Creator. We also see here, although less clearly until we look at the next two verses, the Prime Actor in creation – the Father.

In the second half of verse 2 we read, “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.” Now it is clear that the Trinity is being presented. Here is the Holy Spirit, moving over the as yet unformed Earth, anticipating the people yet to be made who would serve as His temples.

Verse 3 opens with, “And God said…” That simple phrase introduces the very heart of Scripture, the Word of God Himself. This is the very Word of God who would come and take upon Himself our earthly form in order to accomplish our salvation.

So even here in Genesis, we have the beginning of God’s revelation of the Person and work of the Son of God – our Savior. Truly all Scripture has been given to make us wise unto salvation.

Dear Heavenly Father, without the revelation of Your love for us in Christ, I would consider myself lost and without hope or I might build my hope on false pride. So Your Word is a blessing to me in more ways than I can count. Thank You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
