Here is a short sermon I preached at St Peter & St Paul Shepton Mallet, looking at Genesis 1:1-2:3.
Genesis 1 isn’t a science textbook, it’s not a list of facts, it’s a story to teach us something. Moses wanted to remind the Israelites that God was powerful, and that he had a plan that includes each of us.
Today we learn two things from Genesis 1: firstly, that nothing is too big for God, so we should step out in faith because God can be trusted; secondly, that God’s plan sometimes means we have to curb our enthusiasm.
