Creation – Respect
Part 1 – 07/12/2020
Before you begin this Bible study, If you have never believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, John 3:16 tells us: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.’ Simply have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and you will have eternal life and be saved. If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior; then 1 John 1:9 tells us; “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Simply privately tell God the Father your sins to be filled with God the Holy Spirit and He will teach you Bible truth.

1st Promise Memory Verse
“For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible.”
Some people think they were once monkeys and that the earth exploded into existence. This is a lie from Satan and his group of fallen angels. They want people to think that God doesn’t exist.
God always tells the truth. He is veracity, one of His attributes or character (like you might be humorous, funny). That is why, it’s so important to learn Bible Doctrine every day so that you can tell the truth from a lie. God’s words are written down in the Bible, they are Truth!
God is the Creator of everything. God made the Heavens and the earth and everything in it. God painted blue skies with clouds look like cartoon characters. God made trees that wave to us in the breeze and cabbages that look kind of like leafy bowling balls.
Only God knows why ducks quack and swim, why zebras are painted with stripes. God made snakes with diamonds on their backs and caterpillars that change into butterflies. What a wonderful imagination God has and what beauty God created.
Isn’t it amazing that spiders can walk on ceilings? and kangaroo’s have pockets to carry their babies around? God even thought of a way to light up the skies without lamps when He made the Sun, moon and twinkling stars, why God created the whole Universe!!!
I bet God must have had a good laugh when He decided to make a man named Adam out of dust. God gave Adam a soul and brought him to life when God breathed into Adam the breath of life. God even gave Adam a human spirit, so he could learn Bible Doctrine. Just like you! Adam could think with his mind, make his own choices and trust. Just like you!
Genesis 2:7 says: “Then the Lord formed man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.”
God placed Adam in a beautiful garden called Eden and gave him the job of naming all of the animals. God taught Adam Bible Doctrine every day and made only one rule. God told Adam not to eat from the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” or he would die. Adam could say yes to God or no to God. What will he decide to do? We will find out next week…
God is your authority. He knows what is best. He wants you to say yes and obey Him so that you will be happy; this shows Him respect. When you say no to God, then you become miserable. Why?
God gave you parents and it’s your job to say yes to them. When you do, that means you respect their authority. God gave them the job of teaching you right from wrong, so that you will grow to be a responsible adult.
You have many people in your life to respect and honor with authority. When your teacher is giving you a spelling lesson, you need to be quiet and listen. This shows respect. When you do this, you are saying yes to God. God also wants you to respect your coaches, the police and the president of the United States. People who are in charge over you.
It’s never ok to steal shoes, and clothing or even candy or gum from a store or to throw rocks and break out windows. If you do this you aren’t showing respect and you are saying no to God. When you break the law, the police can arrest you and put you in jail. This would be saying no to God.
