Filling spaces

God creates spaces that he intends to fill. God is relational and there is no concept of love, relationship, giving, receiving, and filling without the other. That's why God is a triune being. Thats why he created our universe and this planet and filled it with life. That's why he created humanity and seeks to fill us and order our lives according to his own pattern of relationship.

I heard Rob Bell talk about the pattern for the Genesis 1 poem where God created spaces and then fille those spaces. See the pattern here between day 1 and 4, 2 and 5, 3 and 6. Then on the 7th day, God rested in the completion of his work. Our discovery and understanding of patterns like this are crucial to our understanding of who God is, who we are, and who we are to become.

  • Day 1-God created the light, the day and the night >> Day 4-God filled the day and night with the sun, moon, and stars.
  • Day 2-God created the sky and the oceans >> Day 5-God filled the skies and the oceans with life.
  • Day 3-God created the land and plant life >> Day 6-God filled the land with animals and humans.
