I once had a professor who emphasized the point that God’s creation is not static. He continually creates. For some reason I had trouble with this concept.
The world we live in seems pretty static to me. Think about it. In the traditional creation stories God is creating some rather big stuff. Earth, wind, sky, water, fire, plants, animals, the heavens, the physical laws of the universe… Once done… He rests. So how is it that He continues to create?
Through us… In us… When we allow it, He shapes our lives to His purpose, and that is a continual act of creation.
