Happy New Year, everyone! Except for Rachel because she's throwing up this morning. Dang it. Just as Mom and I are feeling better, she goes and gets it.
2004 is here. We didn't see it come in, this year. We were supposed to have a party at church, but had to cancel it because of our illnesses.
This year, I will be doing something I haven't done in a while. I'll be reaing the Bible all the way through. But in One Year Bible style with The MacArthur Daily Bible, with notes by John MacArthur. If you've never read any of his work, you should. He's a good preacer from California (seems like that's where most of the good preachers are, except for John Piper, he's in Minnesota).
In today's reading, which begins in Genesis 1, he brings up three good points about the creation.
1: Creation was a recent even, measure in thousands not millions of years ago. 2: Creation was ex nihilo, meaning that God created out of nothing. 3: Creation was special with light and time being the first of Godís creative acts, since the day count began before the creation of sun and moon.
There is actually scientific evidence to support a "young earth" theory as well.
Grace to all, see you tomorrow.
