Genesis 1:26-28

Genesis 1:26-28
“26) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
27) So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
28) And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth”

Come, Holy Spirit, come …

“Why do you look so sad today?” Genesis 40:7

Come, Holy Spirit, come;
Let your bright beams rise;
Dispel the darkness from my mind,
And open my blind eyes.

Cheer my desponding heart,
O heavenly Paraclete;
Give me to lie with humble hope,
At my Redeemer’s feet.

Revive my drooping faith;
My doubts and fears remove;
And kindle in my breast, the flames
Of never-dying love!

Convict me of my sin,
Lead me to Jesus’ blood;
And to my wondering view reveal
The secret love of God!

James Smith

“I can imagine …

“I can imagine some one saying, “What am I to do? I cannot create life. I certainly cannot save myself.” You certainly cannot; and we do not claim that you can. We tell you it is utterly impossible to make a man better without Christ; but that is what men are trying to do. They are trying to patch up this “old Adam” nature. There must be a new creation. Regeneration is a new creation; and if it is a new creation it must be the work of God. In the first chapter of Genesis man does not appear. There is no one there but God. Man is not there to take part. When God created the earth He was alone. When Christ redeemed the world He was alone.”
