Breath of Life

Genesis 2:7

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

God formed us from the dust of the ground.

When we were kids, we played in the mud; but, no matter what we did, we were never able to make those clay figurines come to life. Only God can do that.

We breathe oxygen. Without it, we will die.

But, oxygen is not "the breath of life" from God. It is not what brought us to life, initially.

There was oxygen in the air before we were "alive". There was oxygen in the air when we created those clay figurines as kids.

Something else had to happen to get us here.

Much like oxygen, without God, we will all eventually die.

God wills us to live. He urges us to follow His laws, in order to prevent eternal separation from Him. To be separated from God is death. Sin separates us from God.

God sent Jesus that we might have life.
