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 being.
This is so cool. My physical body is made from the earth, but the essence of who I am is from God. Since God gave me life, I owe everything to Him. Everything in our world has a price. If you buy a car, and can’t afford the entire price, they give you a loan and you ‘owe’ the money. If you don’t pay it back, they repossess your car. When you buy a house, you take out a mortgage, and if you don’t pay they foreclose and take the house. So everything we owe, we must pay for. We go to work to receive a salary or wage, so we can pay our debt. The Bible tells us that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23), and all have sinned and fall short (Romans 3:23). So what we deserve is ‘death’. However, Jesus died and rose to pay our debt. In the beginning God gave us life, then we sinned and deserve death, but he came and paid the price. All I need to do is accept Him. It is really that easy. But when we truly accept Jesus, everything changes. We are really born again. I am so grateful for the life He has given me and more over the life he saved. So In The Beginning… “just say Jesus”.
