When God created Adam out of the dirt, he only came to life after God breathed His spirit into him. Before that, Adam was nothing more than a beautiful design incapable of motion, speech, or anything that we now see in man. It was the breath of God into the nostril of man that turned the lights on. Life came alive by the breath of God. There is therefore a direct link between the life of man and the breath of God.
The fall of man from the grace of God was equated to death. God told Adam that eating the forbidden fruit would be death.We ultimately see that but immediately see another kind of death. The separation of man from God. Adam died naturally after several hundred years but was immediately separated from God when He ate the forbidden fruit.
Jesus the second Adam comes to reconcile man to God or shall we say to give man life. Just like Adam only came alive after the breath of God, modern man only comes alive after Jesus the breath of God, or shall we say the word of God is born in their heart. Real life only comes after Jesus. He doesn’t just give life. He is life in its purest and most potent form. You have life in Jesus. Eternal life is not starting when you die. It has already started if you have Jesus.
SCRIPTURE READING: John 10:10
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Precious Jesus, thank you for the eternal life I have received from you. I am living the very life of God. I have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness, I abide in peace and joy every day. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
