Breath of Life


After God formed Adam, God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Gen 2:7) . We may be ‘earth-lings’ but we are ‘spiritual beings’.

While we share our connectedness with the rest of creation, we also stand apart from the rest of creation. We have the capacity to ‘spiritually’ connect with God. The Genesis account presents God walking in the garden in the cool of the day (Gen 3:8) in loving relationship with Adam and Eve.

God’s passionate search for Adam: [“Where are you?” (Gen3:9)] reveals His love for humanity. Adam (and his wife) ‘hid’ themselves amongst the trees of the garden (Gen 3:8). Adam and Eve ‘disconnected’ themselves from the presence of the Lord (Gen 3:8). We must nurture ‘spirituality’ and grow in our understanding of “who God is” and “what His will is for our lives”.

God’s love seeks us from the ‘spaces’ we run to, and run away from to hide from his presence. The Bible is God’s love story of reaching out to people who break the relationship with Him. The soul awakening ‘breath of life’ in us is a powerful reminder of our spiritual connections with God – Samuel Thambusamy
