In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made (John 1:1-3).
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power (Hebrews 1:3).
“The Scriptures tell us that the stability and reliability of the created order as a whole are not qualities that are somehow built into it as much as they stem from the fact that the creation was freely spoken into existence by a God whose words ‘stand fast’ because of his faithfulness; that is, because God has determined to own up to his words.”
