Media @ New Hope CalgaryWe continue our seven week series looking into the person of Jesus Christ (and try to solve for X). In this message we’ll be focusing on Jesus’ role in creation.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” , NIV

“To the Father is attributed the beginning of activity, and the fountain and wellspring of all things; to the Son, wisdom, counsel, and the ordered disposition of all things; [and] to the Spirit is assigned the power and efficacy of that activity.”
John Calvin, Institutes of Christian Religion, on the roles of the Trinity in Creation

“[T]here can be nothing in the universe that fails to express, to incarnate, the revelation of the thought of God. It was not the case that there existed an immeasurable mass of matter that God’s thinking attempted to process, but rather divine thinking is embedded in all created things, and it was primarily this thought of God that prescribes for created things their manner of existence, their form, their principle of life, their destiny and their progress.”
Abraham Kuyper, (p39) Wisdom and Wonder

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Jesus in , NIV
