A Picture of Regeneration in the Creation Account

Gospel hints in Genesis 1:2-3

1. The sinful state of man

Man in his sinful state is man without God. And man without God is man without form.

We were made to walk in relationship with God. That relationship is what made humanity special. Our sin broke that relationship. Now the lost man has no life in him. He is without the only thing that gives him value. He is void.

2. The work of the Holy Spirit

Without the Holy Spirit enabling our blind hearts to see, none of us can know God.

3. The word of God lights up the darkness

Once we were without the knowledge of God, empty, and without form. Now we know Him intimately. Now we have meaning. Now we know our shape.

We cannot save ourselves. God must take the initiative to speak life into our darkened hearts.
