This lesson is based on Genesis 1 & 2 and Jn. 1:1-3.
Have you ever created something? How did you feel when you finished it?
Sometime after Lucifer (now called Satan) and his angels (now called demons) were cast out of heaven, God created the Earth. He, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit created it together. Look at the slideshow to learn how God made our home in six days!
Did you see how God made the environment in the first four days? Do you see how clean it was? When God made our home, He didn’t make anything in it that would pollute it or make it dirty. He didn’t create harmful or poisonous things that would hurt the Earth or anyone in it.
Did you also see how God made everything else only after He finished making the Earth? Once God finished making the Earth, then He made all the animals, creeping things, and Adam and Eve. No one can live in a home while they’re building it! It would be very unsafe! God wanted to make sure that we could live in our home safely before He brought us in it.
Only after God made our home and the many animals and creatures in it, He made Adam and Eve. He made sure we had plenty of friends on the Earth before He made us. God married Adam and Eve and put them in charge of the whole Earth. It was their responsibility to take care of it and every creature.
After God made everything in six days, how do you think God felt when He finished creating our home? He felt very good about it! After He created everything in six days, God created a special day for us called the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week. He wanted to make sure we didn’t work too much or forget that He created the Earth, our home, and everything in it. So He set aside a day where we can spend time with Him. Let’s never forget that God wants this day to be special for us and for Him.
God made us a great home to live in! What are some ways you can take care of it today?
