Michael Lawrence on Creation

“The story of creation is a story in which God makes a claim on your life. The story of creation is a story in which He stakes out ownership rights on you and on me.”

Michael Lawrence is preaching through the story of the Bible at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. Check it out.

Jesus is the very Word of God, “(so) this means that whenever and whatever God creates, whether it’s light or human life or spiritual life, it is an act of powerful, irresistible grace.”

After expounding Ezekiel 36 and John 11: “The bones in that dry valley didn’t say, ‘Oh, I don’t feel like getting up today.’ Lazarus didn’t say to Jesus, ‘Ask me again tomorrow when I’m ready.’ No, friends, when the voice of God rings out in gracious, active, creative power, not even death can say resist! Not even unbelief can say no! Oh, friends, God’s voice is irresistable, because it is powerful.”
