Have previously pondered the place of the sea in the bible, I decided that I might quickly run through the sea using the God's World formula: First Days, Dark Days, Israel, Jesus, Last Day, Today. So here is the First Day post.
"This is God’s world. He made it and continues to sustain it. He made it to reflect his nature by being a place of life and peace. He made humanity to enjoy his world and to live in thankful obedience and dependence on him. When God created the heavens and the earth, it was tohu mobohu – formless and void – covered in the ‘waters of the deep’ and the Spirit of God hovered over the waters. God separated these waters and formed out of them the sky, the seas, and the land. God saw what he had made, and it was good, including the Sea, which was teeming with life (Gen. 1:21). And humans, created to live in obedience to and dependence on God, were to exercise dominion over the living creatures of the sea."
