The way our universe and world was created is widely thought to be explained by the Big Bang Theory. Interestingly, when you read the book of Genesis, you will realise that there is not that much of a difference between the theory and how the Bible begins its story.
At the beginning, we are told that it was a big creation of the heavens and the earth and then there was light – a light that would not have been just a little light that appeared out of nowhere, but a big explosion of light.
Imagine how this would have been when all the colours of creation came to life. You see, without light, we cannot see colour. So when there was light, it would have been an explosion of all the beautiful colours that we see around us in nature, everywhere and in our universe.
Here we see the true wonder of light being illustrated to tell us the beginning of His story. A story that reveals to us that we were never meant to be small and insignificant, but we are part of something greater, to make an impact as extraordinary as the BIG BANG!
Genesis 1:1-5 (NIV)
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘day’, and the darkness he called ‘night’. And there was evening, and there was morning – the first day.”
