Message from Jim Wolfe, High School Teacher

A small child sat intently listening to his parents discussing God and the Bible. After a time the child asked them a simple question.

If God made everything, who made God?

His parents looked at him and then at each other until finally the father gave him this answer.

Son, a lot of very smart people have asked this question. After all, if everything has a beginning or is made out of something or had a creator, then people think God must have had one too! So, let’s think about it. If someone made God, then you must have a bigger God who made that God . . . and a bigger, bigger God who made that bigger God who made God. . . then a bigger, bigger, bigger God who made the bigger, bigger God who made the bigger God who made God. You see, son, we could go on and on and on. The only thing that makes sense is we have to have the biggest God of all. God—the God of the Bible—is the Creator of everything. Nothing and no one is bigger than Him. He was not created but has always existed. He is the Alpha (beginning) and Omega (end). The Bible says, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” In the beginning God was already there and He created all things to teach us more about Him and to show us His power, His goodness, and His wisdom.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)
