The Jesse Tree – Day 1 – The Creation
Look at God’s Work!
In the beginning, there was nothing but water and God.
Then, God said, let there be light. He knew the light meant nothing without darkness. So he created that, too. He separated the two and called them day and night, evening and morning. The first day.
On the second day, God separated the water. Some on the earth and some in the sky. He also determined there to be dry ground and separated it from the water. Now, we have land and sea. A place ready for the next day of work.
Here we are at the morning of the third day. God tells the land to produce plants and trees that bear seeds and fruit. And so it is.
God, on the fourth day, puts the sun, moon, and stars in the heavens and sets them in motion. He knows the plants will need sunshine to produce as He intended.
Now, He creates birds and fish, in the sea and on the land. He looks out over it all and says, “It is good!” It’s the end of day 5.
Day 6 is going to be a busy one. It’s all about creating livestock and animals that move along the ground. Then He creates mankind. Man and woman. He makes them look just like Him. He tells them to rule and subdue the earth. He tells them what they can eat. He looks around and says, “It is good.”
Then God rests.
The Jesse Tree is all about knowing the genealogy of Jesus. The people God put in place to point to the birth of the one who would save us all. Adam and Eve were the first with many more to follow.
The Jesse Tree is a set of posts for the Days of Advent. I am writing them for the Write 31 Days Challenge.
Blessings to you and yours!
