A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: What Is Life?
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.
Read: Jn 14:6
What is life? Many people believe that life cannot be comprehensively defined. Some define and see life to start from birth to the day one breath his or her last here on the face of the earth. This view cannot be totally correct because the bible teaches that, there is life after death. You might have your own way of defining or seeing life.
But putting life in its rightful place, I would love to say that, life is God and God is life. Simple. This is because there was no life in man (when he was first formed from the dust) until God breath into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. This therefore tells us that life actually started with God and will end with Him after this world is passed away.
The lesson we must learn from here is that, no matter who we are and what we do, “….. every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Rom 14:12.” To appreciate God the giver of the life we now live is to live for Him and His Kingdom alone and not to live to please and satisfy the lust of our flesh. And to do this is to first of all surrender the life He gave you to Jesus Christ to wash your sins (that Adam and Eve brought to humanity) away with His precious blood.
Father, I thank You for the life You have given me. Help me to live for You and Your Kingdom in JESUS Mighty Name.
