Week of 11.27.2022 | Day One
Before time began and creation was formed, God existed. He has always existed. He has no beginning and no end—he is eternal. He is also Triune, three persons in one, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
What was an eternal, triune God doing before He created? He was delighting in a perfect, loving relationship within the Trinity. God loves the Son. He is a perfect loving Father. The Son is beloved by the Father, shining the glory of the Father. The Spirit makes known the love of the Father. The eternal God has existed and will always exist as three in one, in perfect love and holiness. There is none like God.
Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
John 17:5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
John 17:22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Hebrews 1:3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
