If you have not already, please go and see the movie "Gravity". A great 1 1/2 hour well spent, regardless of the price of the tickets. Which is a great way to start out my reflection on the Book of Genesis. There is so much to say in the wonders of our existence, our connection to planet earth and the ring of fire, that protect us from unknown objects or other external life. I realized that we are still at civil war because, any human being that fights against another human being, is at war against humanity. I'm beginning to believe that we would rather hold onto the past and die, than reach outside our comfort zone and live forever. The word "power" is a concept that we have yet grasp, it's something we all want, but the force of power is way out of our control. I personally don't know the full truth of the beauty of being a human, which brings me to this point: Jesus Christ, had a full plate in his hands. God really did not have a one on one relationship with his people, until Jesus walked with us. Dying on that cross had to be the most difficult task, that God himself had to choose, against his own will. Although he acknowledge the sin in us, Jesus love those moments and having that one on one relationship with his people. However, just like any parent today or yesterday, there is an authority decision to be made. Jesus had to choose from enjoying his time with us, leaving us to die forever or drink from the cup, that would station himself on the cross so that we can live forever. As I reflect on the first words of Genesis 1:1 "In the Beginning"... I realized that the gravity of my decisions makes life unnecessary difficult and all I need to do is to let go, so that I can walk with God forever lasting.
Genesis:2:10- A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. The name of the four rivers are Pishon, Gihon, Tigris and Euphrates and then Genesis begins the story of "man".
Visualize this: The New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, goes on to tell the story of Christ, Jesus, the son of "man" from Genesis.
