We are able to work out because God is working within, transforming us into the image of His Son.
Blameless, pure and without fault by the grace of God are characteristics of the children of God, as they work out their salvation. Noticeable different by our character, conduct and contrast.

In each instance the spoken Word of God was followed by an immediate result. Let There Be Light — The first thing God does is correct the darkness, for without light there is only chaos. The light was natural, physical light. Its creation was an immediate victory because it dispelled darkness. Light and darkness in the Bible are also symbolic of good and evil. I form the light and create darkness. The Light Was Good — The Hebrew word used here, tov, has a broad range of meaning but generally describes what is desirable, beautiful, or right. God is declaring that what He has created is good.
Separated Light From Darkness — The creation of light did not eliminate darkness, but rather was a separation of the light from the dark matter. On a micro, level, with respect to the earth, the revolution of the earth on its axis, produced the ultimate separation between day and night. Live as children of light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth and find out what pleases the Lord.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. God is bringing order out of the initial chaos. Chaos and randomness are rejected. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. While the author may have meant a hour day, less specific interpretations are possible. In addition, while the sun which marks the change from evening to morning was not created until the fourth day, presumably the earth was already spinning on its axis for the one revolution that came to mark our days.

The first chapter of Genesis conveys a structured outline of creation activity where the description of days 1, 2, and 3 conceptually parallel days 4, 5, and 6. Days 1—3 are preparatory to the acts of days 4—6. Revelatory Days — The six days described in Genesis are hour periods more or less , but creation did not occur on those days.
Analogical — The six days of creation are an analogy for the normal human work week preceding the Sabbath. How one understands the days is less important than the actual purpose of the account, which is to assert that YAHWEH credited with the creation defense , while discrediting the claims of rival deities how we have come to revere science? For example, when Adam was created, he no doubt looked like a mature adult, fully able to walk, talk, care for the garden, etc. When God created fruit trees, they were already bearing fruit.
In each case, what He created was functionally complete right from the start—able to fulfill the purpose for which it was created. Stars, created on Day Four, had to be seen to perform their purpose of usefulness in telling time; therefore, their light had to be visible on Earth right from the start. Relative Days — Time is not absolute, or so said Albert Einstein.
It is flexible. It can be stretched so it flows at different rates. But the different flows are only observable by comparing one flow of time relative to the other flow of time relativity. Most people are aware that as speed increases, time slows down relative to time at slower speeds. Someone making a round trip to a distant planet traveling at the speed of light would age much slower than the loved ones he returned to. So, how does this help reconcile And it continued to be as He continued His creative work. Regardless of which view one holds, there is no demonstrated conflict between creationism as it recorded in Genesis and scientific fact.
He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. Accept the light. All Scripture references, unless otherwise indicated are from the New International Version, Jamieson, R.

Genesis, Days Of. In Baker encyclopedia of Christian apologetics p. The muses never married, which gave them more time to be creative in various ways. They often blinded their rivals, and were known to party with satyrs. They had a lot of kids. Most of them grew up to be kings and other poweerful people.
Terpsichore was the mother of several men. Some say Orpheus was the son of Calliope, but others claim Polymnia was his mom. Who knows? They were a frisky bunch and it was a long time ago. I will move on to more modern definitions. To be absorbed in thought. To think about something carefully.

Musing Off the Mat – Joyce Poggi Hager
Something to think about. Some artists and writers have also chosen a living human as their muses. Mostly men I think. Do women muse about men? Musing may be a prolonged and inconclusive thinking about a matter, person or personified force. A source of inspiration for creative artists.
A thought provoking image, or a word. Aha, familiar ground at last. Perhaps from this same site. We may have met the muses in the shower, in the car, a late night drive, or in a dream recalled upon awakening.
Sometimes the muse comes uninvited, sometimes sought to be united. Well known and well published writers have recommended everything from coffee to cannabis—be careful of the laws in your location. Meditation might be useful. Can you sit and not make thoughts your aim?
