The Third Day
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. — Genesis 2:7 (KJV)
‘The climax of God’s creative work is the forming of Adam… The first man is FORMED by God …, and he not only formed Adam, but also he FILLED him. He breathed into Adam’s nostrils. God’s life-force entered Adam, making him a LIVING, SPEAKING SOUL. This shows that the breath that God breathed had spiritual as well as physical POWER. It wasn’t just for human existence on the earth; it was also for INTIMATE COMMUNION with God… Adam was created by God in a unique and intimate way.
When Adam came to consiousness, he was FACE TO FACE with HIS FATHER.’
It was such a magic moment: Adam was formed of the mud, he was dead but God breathed into him, it filled him and he was alive. The power of God’s breath gave us life and we became a living soul.
How wonderful and beautiful the moment is that: when we are able to be face to face with God, and He looked into our eyes with the deepest love, we can also look into his and say it in our heart that how much we have appreciated him.
