The Breath of Life

God created Adam and Eve's bodies, then breathed into them and gave them life. The breath of life in you and me is also from God. One day, he will call back that breath, and your body will return to dust.

In this way, we see that God as the Creator owns every person. By your own voluntary rebellion, you cut yourself off from God, the source of life. If you're to come back to God, through repentance and faith in Jesus, it will involve a very real crucifixion. Not only your outward behavior, but your wicked heart and the hidden details of your life enter into the tomb and are dead and buried with Christ. Without this, there is no resurrection and no new creation in Christ.

Will you give yourself totally to Jesus, and use every breath of life that remains in you to love and serve God?
