It Was Very Good

August 31st, 2010


Everything God makes is good. How can it be otherwise?

There is a brand of spirituality that disparages material reality. Some who left the Early Church went so far as to claim Christ could not have come in the flesh and been fully divine. They believed material reality was essentially polluted. This is not the view of Scripture.

Genesis 1 states seven times that what God created was “good”. Each time it relates to some aspect of creation. Seas, dry ground, plants, animals, sun, moon, and stars; it was all good. In the Hebrew mind, the thing created reflects not only the skill, but the character of the Creator.

God created people in His image so they would reflect His character. His character is holiness. God made us, and what He makes is good.
