So What is it That Really Holds Us Together? – Ecc 4:9-12, Col 1:15-20

What a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s day! It started with a homemade breakfast of scrambled eggs, waffles, muffins, and fruit; followed by a meaningful time of worship and communion. We had the privilege of having Dr. Paul Stevens as our guest speaker and he shared from a very familiar passage from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12,

 

9 Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their labor:

10 If either of them falls down,

one can help the other up.

But pity anyone who falls

and has no one to help them up.

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

 

From this passage, we see that there is synergy, sustaining help, comfort, and security. What is that third strand and what does it represent?

Under God's Rule, Humanity Flourishes - Gen 2:4-25
Written by John Tsang

Like the four different Gospels that tell a fuller story of Jesus life and ministry; Genesis 2 offers a different and complementary perspective to the Creation story. There are four major themes in Genesis 2.

 

First, we are given a picture of God’s very personal act of creation when He breathed the breath of life into the man and the man became a living being (2:7). Adam is different from all other creatures in that he is a spiritual being. This is one aspect of the image of God and it means that only God can meet our need for spiritual relationship.

In the Beginning, God Created - Gen 1:1-2:3
Written by John Tsang

Genesis is foundational in many ways. It tells the story of God creating the heavens and the earth (which is a short form meaning everything), plants and animals, and finally, humanity in His image.

 

Over the past 100-150 years, science has emerged as the definitive determination of truth. As a result, many have read Genesis through the lens of science and asked ‘how’ questions. How God created is not specifically detailed in Genesis 1. The repetition of phrases, the cadence, and rhythm of the creation story leads us to conclude that Genesis 1 is more of a poem or a song of creation than a detailed specific explanation of how the universe and life began. Genesis ultimately provides answers to “who”, “why”, and “what creation is for” questions, more so than how.
