Genesis 2 Summary

  • v1-3 - God completes the creation week with a day of rest, setting a pattern we continue to follow today.

  • v4-14 - The creation of man is re-described.

  • v15-17 - God establishes what is often referred to as the Covenant of Works. If Adam obeys, he will live, but if he disobeys, he will die.

  • v18-25 - After having Adam survey all of the animals that had been created, but none of them was a suitable helper/partner for Adam.

    • So God created Woman by taking her out of Man.

    • God places Adam and his newly created partner in the institution of marriage.

Yesterday we read about how God made man, both male and female, in His image and gave them dominion over all that He had created.

Chapter two elaborates on the value that God gave you in creation. Verse 7 states:

the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

In the Biblical languages, the word translated as 'breathed' can also mean 'spirit,' and both of these meanings are meant to be understood here.

Not only did God bring Man to life in much more intimate way than any of the other animals, but He created us so much in His image that He put His Spirit into us as well. It's this 'glory' that we've exchanged for the desires of sin (Romans 1:21-24).

Be reminded as you read this today of why it is that God loves you so much. He's literally put Himself into you, and His Son would go on to give Himself up so that God's image and Spirit could be completely restored in you.

AAA Prayer:

  • ACKNOWLEDGE WHO GOD IS: Father God, who created you in His image and glory;

  • ALIGN YOUR LIFE WITH GOD'S WILL: Ask God to make His Spirit more and more evident in your life;
