How do you measure your worth? Is your dignity based on what you do? And do you judge other people based on what they do, and not who they are? The sixth day of creation shows us that we are uniquely made in the image of God, and our worth, our dignity, does not come from what we do but who God has made us to be.
Jesus says that "whoever believes in him" will be saved. "Whoever" is the promise that all who come in true repentance will be accepted. "Believes" means we are totally convinced that Jesus is who he says he is and will do what he says he will do. And our faith is "in Jesus,"; there is an object to our faith.
Life has a way of making God small in our eyes. We go through painful times, or get busy and focused on the details of life, or we become overly-impressed with ourselves and think we are in fact the center of the universe. There are many things that can make God seem small, and at the same can often seem to make our problems big. Genesis 1 helps us to lift up our eyes, see the enormity of God, and trust him in the difficult times of life.
