“God’s Breath”

“And the Lord God formed a man’s body from the dust of the ground

and breathed into it the breath of life. And the man became a living person.”

Genesis 2:7

For all His other creations, God simply spoke, and what He commanded was created. But when it came to man, God formed a body from the dust. That fact alone is amazing…God did not simply speak, He took the effort to form, to lovingly shape every intimate detail. That body was God’s perfect image, and yet, it was still lifeless as it lay before Him. At that point in creation, man was still an “it!” Not until God breathed HIS breath into the body did the IT become a living person!

How incredible…I am created in GOD’s image…I have GOD’s breath in me! If I fully comprehended the meaning of those truths, I wonder how it would affect the way I live? If I truly bear God’s image in my body…do my actions look anything like His? And if I am breathing God’s breath, do the words that flow from my mouth sound anything like His?

What a different world this would be IF we who bear God’s image would wear God’s image—if we who breathe in God’s breath would breathe out His kindness, His grace, and His love.

“Oh, Father in heaven, my loving Creator,

help me today to act like YOU and breathe like YOU.”
