Today’s Passage:  “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.  Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”

Devotional Thought:  This past weekend was my annual get together with six guys I met at Purdue.  We gathered this year at Purdue and played a lot of golf and went to the football game.  There was a point Sunday where I looked out over one of the holes on the Kampen Course and was just struck by how magnificent life can be.  I thought about our God who created this world from nothing…how God had gifted the course designer with skills to create a challenging yet beautiful course…how God had allowed me to meet and know these 6 guys: Dave, Clay, Bob, Steve, Jeff, and Greg…  When was the last time that you took the time to know and realize the God we worship is indeed awe-inspiring!
