God created the universe, including you and me.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1, NIV)

Because He is our creator, He loves us as a parent loves the children they have brought into the world. Because He is our creator, our sins matter to Him as a child’s actions and character matter to their parents.

When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were created, he called them “man.” (Genesis 5:1–2, NIV)

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13, NIV)

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” (Revelation 4:11, NIV)
