I School Lesson
Lesson Scripture: Genesis 2:7
Lesson Aims: To explain the
biblical account of human cre
ation, to understand that God has
a purpose for humanity and to
appreciate the institution of mar
Background: The book of
beginnings recorded God's mag
nificent creation. Within those
first two chapters so much hap
pened that we ought to be speech
less. God allowed humanity to
view (in retrospect) His power. He
simply spoke and it was so!
Day one, light was diffused and
separated from darkness. On the
second day. God divided the
waters with an expanse called sky.
The third day, the omnipotent one
organized dry ground (land) for
habitation. Day four, God created
the stars, moon and sun, with the
latter two determining seasons. On
the fifth day and part of the sixth,
God populated the land, the sky
and the water. Each animal was
blessed and told to multiply. The
final creation on day six was man.
The Trinity created man in their
own image, and man had domin
ion over the creation. Last week's
lesson included God's instructions
to man (verses 29-31). At the end
of the sixth day, God pronounced
all of His creation as "very good."
Our lesson today goes into more
depth on this part of creation.
Lesson: First of all, the seventh
day is established and made holy.
Then creation of man is revisited.
From the dirt God fashions a
body. Into it He breathes the
breath of life, and man becomes a
living soul. This wonderful ere
at ion is then placed in the Garden
of Eden (park of delight). If we
think back, last week's verses 29
31 have even more meaning here.
The trees of life and of knowledge
are in the middle of the garden (v.
9) also. For what purpose was all
of this? Man is to work and take
care of the garden. He also is
given the responsibility to name
every living creature. Though the
creatures of the land have mates,
Adam (made from land) does not.
God causes man to go into a deep
sleep. From Adam, God takes a
rib and forms a helpmate for him.
She is given to Adam and he
names her woman because she
came from him. God institutes
marriage in verses 24 and 25.
Application: Humanity is no
accident, no quirk of nature.
Humanity is not the result of
some cosmic collision. God's eter
nal plan has included all of us.
Even today, no matter the circum
stances, we are here because God
said so! Nbw within this plan it
becomes obvious that humanity
has something to do. There is pur
pose for everything that God cre
ated. Humanity's purpose is to be
responsible care takers of the cre
ation and have direction in our
lives. Direction is wholly depen
dent on God, which leads to wor
ship and obedience to Him. Adam
had no equal. God created exactly
what was needed. The two, man
and woman, are created for rela
tionship with one another. This
relationship included loving, help
ing and nurturing each other in all
things. Verses 24 and 25 give
insight into a successful union.
Man and woman are to keep each
other first behind God; that
includes family, finances and the
like. Secondly, they are to become
one. This doesn't mean that their
individual identities are lost but
they are focused on the same
goals (maybe equally yoked?).
Each task or situation before
them is approached as a unified
effort. Finally step three of this
union is based on intimacy with- ?
out shame. Notice the formula. If
relationships today are to be suc
cessful, we need to go back to
God's way. This union is mystical
and fulfilling, but God must be at
the center of it.
This wonderful creation is
completed and God wants human
ity to worship Him.
