Moving in Accord with God

The first chapter of Genesis tells of great motion. First we read that "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Then come these metaphysically important words: "And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." The first step of mankind's salvation from the darkness of mortal ignorance was movement denoting the spiritual action of God upon human thought.

Reading on in this chapter of Genesis, we find ourselves in the midst of movement: the gathering together of the seas, the growth of grass, the unfolding vigor of seed, the action of light, the moving creatures of sea and sky, the creeping things—in fact, "every living thing that moveth"; and finally man, God's image and likeness, exercising dominion over all.

"Oh that men would praise the Lord!"
