Archaeology has presented evidence concerning the reality of evolution. Theories in books, and fossils in laboratories and museums, make an interesting case that is hard to dismiss. There are many who still hold the view that all things in existence were “spoken into being” (Gn. 1:1-19). This narrative was written at a time when science was still ‘in the womb’ and people were trying to make sense of their world.
Whether one subscribes to ‘evolution’ or ‘creation’ theories, one truth cannot be denied — the Source from whom all things come, the One who first existed before all things, must be a Higher Being who we call God. God is First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. In the same way people have different theories about the beginning of life, so too people have different names for God. For us, we acknowledge the name of Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus, You are the Author of life and the Source of all good things in existence. Help us to honour, love and serve You as our true God, who grants eternal life to all. Amen.
