Why does it matter?

There are many ideas about how the earth was formed and they’re everywhere. You can read theories in textbooks, watch reenactments online, and listen to debates.

Why do people wonder how the earth was made?

It was years and years and years before any of us even existed, so why does it matter? Could it be because the answer may lead to something more significant?

The earth and the universe both have an origin. Both are also made out of matter. The Law of Conservation of Matter states that matter cannot be created or destroyed—so what is the origin of the matter that was used to form the earth and surrounding universe? How do we go from a starting point where there was nothing and then something a moment later? The Bible has an explanation.

“[Jesus] existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see“ (Colossians 1:15-16).

Everything was formed through Jesus, including the first instances of matter. So God spun the earth into existence through His Son Jesus Christ, but no one was around to see this. Did God do anything similar after He sent Jesus to earth?

“Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children!“ (Matthew 14:19-21)

Jesus created matter in front of thousands of eyewitnesses. Not only that, each person touched and ate the food he produced. God did a miracle through Jesus but there’s much more.

When God sent Jesus to earth, it wasn’t just to prove He could make matter or display His divinity. Jesus came to show His love for us. God created us to have a relationship with Him, but our sin put a barrier between us and Him.

Jesus’ love for us became clear when He allowed Himself to die on the cross and pay the price for our sins. His sacrifice paved a way for us to be together forever once our time on earth is done.

When you put your faith in Jesus, you’ll experience the greatest discovery of all—beginning a daily conversation with God and knowing your eternity is safe with Him.

Are you ready to know your Creator and begin a relationship with Him?
