The Ultimate Creator

C. Hayden
Don’t you love when people, devoid of a relationship with God, try to wrap their brain around how the
universe began, often within the context of there not being a God at the very heart of the process. You
know how it goes. ”Well…there was this big bang that took place and life just happened.” First off, most
big bangs I have seen cause utter destruction, killing everything in its wake. It never results in the
creation of ordered life. Putting that aside, I don’t have a problem with the “Big Bang” as long as we
realize that the big bang is recognized as an event caused by some thing or SOMEONE. The very first
chapter of the Book tells us that God spoke into the dark void of nothingness and there was light! Thus,
the Big Bang! God’s Word has more than enough power to produce a very, very large, universe creating
explosion! As Julie Andrews put so preciously as she played
Maria in the Sound of Music, singing with her new-found love,
“Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could.”
The Bible tells us that it was Jesus who caused that big
bang. Yes, before Jesus was the baby in a manger, He started
this whole blue planet a rotating with light shining upon it
from every direction. Colossians 1:16-17 says, ” For by Him
all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones
or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is
before all things, and in Him all things consist.” Yes, the Scriptures are speaking of Jesus. His foretold
coming to this earth was prophesied in the book of Genesis, throughout the Old Testament in many
places, and fulfilled with His advent and life biography illustrated in the New Testament. Christmas is
the imprint of the personhood of God coming to show His love for all of personkind! Jesus is the
Ultimate Creator!
This Christmas, as we gather with loved ones, exchanging presents along with good cheer, may
we take time to recognize and worship our Lord Jesus who started it all. He is not only the “Reason for
the Season,” He is the reason for our existence! He not only gave us this wonderful holiday to celebrate,
He gave us life eternal with Him in His Kingdom, the most precious of all gifts. Now that is really
something worthy of celebrating! As Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, is credited with saying, Merry Christmas
to all, and to all a good night!
Be blessed even more!!
