"Let There Be Life...." (January 9, 2011)

The Bible is both an incredibly human and God-breathed collection of stories, histories, poetry, prophecies, and letters.  We can divide the Bible up by book and author: the Protestant Bible contains 66 in all.  We can divide the Bible up into categories like The Five Books of Moses, the Prophetic Writings, the Gospels of Jesus Christ, or the Letters of Paul.  Another way to divide up the Bible, suggests John Ortberg, is by time frame.  One of these time frames is what might be called the "Three-Day Story.”  Beginning with the Third-Day of Creation in Genesis 1: 1-13, let’s take a look at these powerful stories over the next several weeks and what they have to teach us about getting from despair to hope, from chaos to creativity, and from barrenness to new life…because from the dawn of Creation the power of the Third Day is God’s promise to each of us who trust in him.  Click this link to download.
