Alpha & Omega | brian agovino

Genesis 1:1 [ESV]

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 

“The blunt monosyllable and clunky sound “God” easily goes with the popular image of God as a bully in the sky who makes demands and becomes dangerously petulant if people ignore Him. For many people the idea that there is a “God” like that is bad news not good news.”

-N.T. Wright

01. Who is the God of the Bible?

A. He Creates

Genesis 1:1-2 [esv]

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:3 [esv]

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

C. He Creates Beauty with Words

02. How Should We Respond?

Exodus 20:1-2 [ESV]

1 And God spoke all these words, saying,

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

John 1:1 [ESV]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
