Key thing to remember people, pray before you start your daily Bible reading. I have been struggling to get much out of my readings, but today I prayed before hand. Second verse in, boom, something I hadn't realized before. :D Genesis Chapter 1 is the Creation story. And it starts with a message of transformation. Verse 2:

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.

Subsequently, God takes that formless and empty earth and transforms it into what He calls "good". Isn't that what God does to us when we are saved? We are formless and empty sinners, separated from Him. Then He comes and step by step transforms us into the beings He wants us to be.
