Planet earth did not evolve. It was designed and created by God. The word “God” in this text is the Hebrew word “Elohim”, which is plural, referring to the Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
How God could be one God and yet three separate beings is a mystery in itself.
A simple illustration of this concept can be seen in the humble apple.
An apple has three parts: the peel, the flesh and the core.
They are all separate parts of the apple.
Yet they are all one apple. They are not an orange, a lemon or a watermelon. They have different purposes, but they are just one apple.
Similarly, the Godhead has three persons. They all have different roles, but they are just one God.
Creation is important because it demonstrates the power of God and tells us why human beings are so precious.
God designed and made Adam and Eve with His own hands, to be His personal friends and companions. We are special to God – we are even made in His image (Genesis 1:26).
