We must begin with the triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit who have eternally existed in perfect love and unity. God then creates the universe in its entirety and calls it “very good”. Being that God created all He is worthy of all glory and praise and is the one who sustains all of creation. He created to display His glory and love and made the pinnacle of His creation man, whom He created “in His image” that we might have relationship with our creator God.
In us God breathed His breath of life and called us into a partnership with Him to live, work and enjoy all that He had created. We would live in perfect harmony as we worked, played and flourished together in creation. In creation we see a God who takes initiative to be intentionally present in a loving relationship with His creation.
