Topic: Genesis 2:4-7
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
I have seen many interesting sand sculptures on the beach, but one creation remains a vivid memory. Some talented person had fashioned a sunbathing woman complete with long,flowing hair and a modest seaweed swimsuit! She was incredibly realistic and caused quite a stir among those passing by.
Long ago, another Creator formed a person from the earth. With loving hands and an eternal plan, He molded the soil until He was satisfied with the shape. Then, with His very own breath, He filled the dusty lungs and jump-started the heart. He gave the eyes sight and opened blood vessels. He aroused the ears and taught the skin to feel. He awakened emotions and gave the brain the ability to reason. God had created man.
As impressive as the sand woman was, she couldn't talk, breathe, or swim in the ocean. No amount of ingenuity on the part of her sculptor could make her rise and walk. Only God can make dirt live!
Awesome Creator, thnk You for life!
