Creator of Life. This truth has been repeated numerous times in the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis: God is the creator and giver of life. But it’s not just creation ex-nihilo that bears witness of that reality, so does procreation. Yes, there are complementary biological mechanisms that God instituted in men and women, but the creation of human beings transcends the material realm. Only God can see that a living being would have an eternal soul. Eve was right when she conceived, bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the LORD” (4:1b). Adam and Eve did not “bring about for themselves” a son; rather, with the help of the creator of life (per NASB translation), they received a son. Subsequent revelation would bear witness to Eve’s exclamation – God sovereignly superintends the conception and formation of life (Gen. 20:18; 25:21; 30:2; 48:4; Ps. 113:9; 127:3; 139:13; Jer. 1:5).

Up until this point we’ve posted two Daily Teachings with similar titles; one on the subject of Bible-reading and one on the subject of prayer. In both of those cases the idea was the same: a little of either one is much, much better than…nothing. A little bit of Bible reading each day is far better than none. And likewise a little bit of prayer each day is far better than none. That, however, is not the case with worship. A little worship would not compromise true worship.
