Elohim, the creator by Pastor Ed Young
You talk to someone who knows fashion they can look at someone’s outfit and tell you what they’re wearing. Oh, that’s Armani, Versace, Proda, Target. They can just do it that quick. (audience laughter) As Christ followers, those of us who are clothed in Christ, those of us who have the thread of our designer, people should look at us and go, oh, man, I know you’re wearing, that’s Jesus Christ. I see the Lord all over your life. I see, I see him in everything you do, say, touch and feel. I see the designer. I see the thread. So let me take some time, just a couple of moments this morning, and introduce you to God. To introduce you to the essence of who he is because it’s all about his name.
Meet Elohim – the creator. That’s a name of God. A plural name of God. Elohim, the creator. If you have your Bible’s turn to Genesis Chapter 1 verse 26. Genesis Chapter 1 verse 26. God is speaking and he says, “let us make man in our image”. You might be saying, man, what’s up with that Ed, us? I mean, singular. No, no, no we’re talking Elohim, the creator, us, who’s us? It’s the essence of who God is, the Trinity; God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit; co-existent; co-eternal. We are made in God’s image. We are an illustration of the Trinity. You’re a trinity; I’m a trinity; everybody is a trin, trin, trinity. Body, soul, and spirit. We’re a trinity made in the image of our Trinitarian God; God the Father; God the Son; God the Holy Spirit. Don’t ever say, don’t ever say, well, I’m just not creative. I’ve never had an original thought in life. I’m just not that way. That’s not me. Man, get that weak stuff out of God’s space. You’re making a mockery of the creative genius of God. Every single one of us is a creative genius. Everybody. That’s why the church should be the most innovative entity in the world. If you ever go to a church and you’re bored, do not blame God. God’s not boring. Blame the people who are leading the church. Elohim, the creator; the innovator. Every one of us in this place is a work of art. We’re unique. So meet Elohim.
