The Bible and Science – Water #1

Genesis 1:2b The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.(NIV) 

This simple statement right at the beginning of the Bible connects God with one of His most amazing creations – water.  This chemical compound is very simple yet it does important things in most branches of science.  Why, before we can get out of Clouds 2the first chapter of the Bible God separates it, gathers it, and puts living things in it.

Here are some examples of what happens with it:

  • Floods
  • It is feared
  • A lack of it changes history
  • Separates
  • Comes out of a rock
  • Makes borders
  • Is used to baptize
  • Sailed on
  • Fished it
  • Walked on
  • Makes big storms and wrecks ships

Water fountainWe find God using it all the way through Scripture right to the very last chapter of the Bible.  Revelation 22: 17 “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (NIV)  Have you had that drink yet?

∞Father, thank You for water and Your free gift.  Help me remember to offer someone a drink today.

Assignment: I did not list all of the uses/functions of water; in fact I left out some rather important ones.  Find them and make a list.
