Five Bible Verses for Earth Day

By Amelia Hamilton Published on April 22, 2015

Today is Earth Day. While we work towards respecting and preserving our planetary home, let us not forget that it is God who made it. When we celebrate the Earth, we celebrate His creation. Here are 5 Bible verses to keep in mind for Earth Day:

1.By faith we understand that the world was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear.” (Hebrews 11:3)

2.  for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)

3.In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters...And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so.  God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. ” (Genesis 1:1, 9-10)

4.And, “Thou, Lord, didst found the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of thy hands” (Hebrews 1:10)

5.Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it.” (Isaiah 42:5)
