“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31
God had made everything that there is. The sun, moon, stars, land, water, plants, animals, birds, fish, and man and woman were all made by God. He did this is six days. At the end of each day God looked at what He had made and said it was good. However, on the sixth day, He said everything was very good. He was finished with creating.
At this point in history, sin had not yet entered into the world. Adam and Eve had not yet sinned bringing about death to the world. Everything was working in perfect order.
Today, thousands of years later, it is often very hard to imagine anything being perfect. It is springtime now and people are starting to plant gardens. One of the biggest challenges to building a good garden is getting rid of the weeds. Those weeds were originally brought on by sin.
Continue to look around and you see horrible weather doing extremely destruction. You see babies being born with extreme defects in their physical form. You see people hating and killing each other everywhere. It may make you wonder if God cares anymore.
Yet, God does care and He still makes things with perfection. Even though you have inherited and taken on sin in your life, God still made you perfectly the way He made you. He also is working on making you perfect in character and becoming sinless.
Jesus came into this world to die on the cross to remove all the sin in your life. He is working to restore the perfection that God intended for your life. God made this world and Adam and Eve with perfection in mind. Sin changed all of that.
God has made you and said you are very good. He is looking not at your imperfections but what you can be in Jesus.
In order to receive that perfection, however, you must accept Jesus and what He has done for you. You must accept His perfect sacrifice to remove the corruption in your life.
You are of extreme value to God, not some worthless trash. Allow God to do something with you today. Live for God today.
I pray today that you will know the value God has for you; that you will allow Jesus to change your life; that you will serve God with all of your life; and that you will live in the perfection of Jesus.
