CBSM Sermon Video: “Ex Nihilo: That’s What HE Said (Doctrine of Creation)”


I always love to see God do the opposite of what we think might happen. As the snow storm absolutely whited out north Alabama this week, we were wondering whether or not we should cancel our service this Wednesday night for safety concerns. We decided to go ahead and have our Wednesday night worship service, and God brought in so many new visitors and an absolutely huge crowd. God gave us such a powerful night of worship, and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything in the world. We also started this new series “Ex Nihilo” on the doctrine of creation. We kicked it off with a sermon in Genesis 1 called “That’s What HE Said” which was all about how God spoke everything into existence from absolutely nothing. And there is a huge reason why God spoke everything into existence. There’s a huge reason why God the Father and God the Spirit are spoken of explicitly in Genesis 1, but Jesus (God the Son) is not spoken of explicitly. He is in there implicitly, but its that mystery of the creation through Christ and for Christ (Colossians 1:15-16) that brings beauty and meaning to His creation. Check out the sermon mp3 and marvel in the glory of God’s creative design…for Christ.

Storyline #1 – Genesis 1 – The Secret God Kept For Thousands of Years

If I wanted you to know more about me, I’d take you to my home. Not my house here, but I would take you to my old home in Tuscaloosa. I’d show you my house, where I used to shoot basketball for hours and hours during the summer. I’d show you my room where I played video games with friends all night long. Taking you to my home, my church, and my school where I grew up would give you a better understanding of why I am the way that I am. Moses is doing the exact same thing with the Israelites in Genesis. Genesis was written during the Exodus as God is revealing who He is as the Creator-Covenant God and who they are as His people.
