Bahan Alkitab: Genesis 1:26; 2:4-25
God had created a lot of things in the past six days. God made day and night. He made the sun, moon and stars. God made the water and land. He made the fish, birds, plants and other animals on land.
However, God’s work of creating was not yet finished. God created a man next, the man is Adam. Adam is different as compared to the other creations that God had created. The bible tells us that God created man in God’s own image. When God created the first man, he not only gave him a body, he gave man a soul that would last forever too. God gave him a heart that would love God, and the ability to praise and serve God.
God said that it was not good for the man to be alone. Hence, God made a helper suitable for Adam. While Adam slept, God created Eve. Now Adam would not be alone anymore. God had given Adam someone who would be his helper.
God blessed Adam and Eve and gave them the job of ruling over the earth and all living things.
