In The Beginning

Genesis 1:26 – Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

After I accepted the gift of Salvation on The Day I Met My Best Friend, I developed a habit of reading The Bible. I remember that day so well. When I got to verse 26 of Genesis 1, I was floored. I was a bachelor at the time and alone in my apartment. I said aloud; “Wait a minute! Who is God talking to?” So I started digging in the reference section of that page.

I followed the references to St. John 1:1-5 and the word of God continued to blow my mind. I discovered that Jesus, my best friend, was present when God made the earth! I mean I had heard these passages all of my child and young adult life in the church, but I never really gave it much thought until the day my understanding was opened up a little bit more.

I want to encourage you to read and study the Holy Written Word of God. Over the years I have found so much that helped me to develop a strong and purposeful relationship with my Best Friend Jesus. There’s been times I was convicted for the wrong I was doing. And there’s been times I was encouraged.

I thank God for my Best Friend Jesus. I thank God for His word.
