CREATION – Day 3 and 4

week-of-creation Genesis 1

The Book of Genesis – It all began with God

Genesis 1:9-19 

Chapter 1 

On the first day, God created the heavens and the earth. In the beginning the earth was dark and empty. Then He created light and divided the light from the darkness to make day and night. 

On the second day, God formed the earth’s sky and He gave the earth the air that we breathe and the water we drink. He also separated the water on the earth from the clouds in the sky. 

Now let’s see what He created on the 3rd and 4th day.

On the third day, God gathered all the water on the earth into oceans. Dry land appeared for the first time. Then God created all kinds of plants, grass, and trees.  

Here is how the Bible tells us the story: 

v9 And God said, ‘Let the water under the sky be gathered together so the dry land will appear. And that is what happened.


Just think how great God is, He just said what He wanted to happen and it did.  

v10 God called the dry land ‘earth’. And He called the waters that were gathered together ‘seas’. And God saw that all those things were good.

And God named the dry area – EARTH and the wet area – SEAS. 

v11 Than God said, ‘Let plants grow on the earth. Let seed-bearing plants grow there that have grain and seeds. And let trees grow there. They will be trees with fruits that have seeds. So then more grass and plants and trees will grow. Each one will be the same kind as the first one that it came from.’ And that it what happened.


Wow! Now God spoke ‘plants’ into existence. These are the first things in creation that are alive. They are the first things that grew. 

Have you ever planted a seed and waited for it to grow? It takes a long time for it to start sprouting, but when God gave the command for plants, trees and the grass to be on earth they all showed up immediately. 


v12 The land produced vegetation: different plants with seed and many fruit trees with seed. And God saw that all those things were good.


v13 And there was evening and there was morning. That was the third day.

God really created a lot of things on the third day, can you imagine Him creating all the plants in the whole world in just one day? Only God can do that!

On the fourth day, God made all the stars. He also made the sun and the moon. He had already created light on the first day and now He was creating the light that would shine at night and during the day for the earth we live in. 

v14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the sky in order to separate day from night. These lights will be used for signs, seasons, days and years.

v15 They will be in the sly to give light to the earth.” And it happened.


Now God is creating the stars, the moon and the sun. So what does He mean about “seasons in the year”? Well, we all know that when the days are long and hot it is summer and when the days are short and cold it is winter. Then we have the season when everything is blooming and that is spring and in fall all the leaves start turning different colours and shedding their leaves. 


Just think . . . God was starting the four seasons just like He had created night and day. These seasons would also show us when we would celebrate special holidays that God would give us.  

Can you think of a special holiday that the Bible tells us about? 

v16 So God made two great lights. The larger light He made brighter to rule the day, and the smaller light to rule the night. God also made the stars.

Amazing how God created all the millions of stars that we can see in the sky every night. And He created the sun to give light during the day and the moon to give light during the night. 


v17 God put them in the sky in order to give light to the earth.

God gave light to the day so we could play when the sun is shining and during the night we can sleep better because it is dark.  

v18 He put them there to rule over the day and night. He put them there to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that all those things were good.

v19 And there was evening and there was morning. That was the fourth day.


Can you just imagine how amazing God is, that He created all the stars, the sun and the moon in just one day! And when He looked at them He was very happy since God only creates good things.

Goodbye, until next time; when we will learn what God created on the fifth and sixth day.   

Until then, remember to say your prayers obey your mom and dad and do not forget to go to church and Sunday school next week.
