The Creation of Man

scan0004Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. ESV

Genesis 2:7, then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. ESV

The amazing aspect of the creation of man is God didn’t just speak Adam into existence. He bent down and with his hands made man’s body out of the dirt. God was personally involved.

God then invested of himself by breathing his life into man. In this way, God created man in his image, spirit. The rest of creation shows the glory of God and God’s spirit is everywhere, but man holds a particular distinction over the rest of the animal kingdom. Man is spirit and God’s Spirit dwells in man.

“Jesus, breathe your breath in me even as the Father did in Adam and as you did in your disciples. Spirit of God, give me your living life, today.”
