GOD-GIVEN LIFE

In the beginning God gave life. When it came to mankind, His favored creature, God gave life with a personal touch—
 
            “…the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and
             breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became
             a living being.” (Genesis 2:7)
 
            “Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken
             out of the man, and he brought her to the man.” (vs.22)
 
God sustains His personal interest in mankind. King David recognized this reality in one of his psalms—
 
            “For you [God] created my inmost being;
                 you knit me together in my mother’s womb. …
             All the days ordained for me
                 were written in Your book
                 before one of them came to be.” (139:13 &16b)
 
And Jesus gives us this assurance regarding His “life” plan for His ”sheep”—
 
            ““I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.””
               (John10:10b)
 
Yes, through Christ we have “full,” eternal life which He personally made possible. Our God-given life has no end!
 
REFLECTION: Our life is God-given with a personal touch!
