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.
Man is created by the word of God, the same word is for his recreation.
Many times as a child, we made sculpture but they never became a living soul. I have seen drawings and pictures that are unmistakably original, but they inanimate and not alive.
When God made man man from dust, it remained earthly until his word and spirit came upon him. Without the word of God, the sculpture or body disintegrates and lacks value.
The greatest tragedy for man is the loss of God’s presence and voice due to the fall.
Man become vulnerable to everything after disconnecting from his source.
The word of God determine the worth of man. Man has no capacity to determine his worth or add value to himself. Attempts at improvement and enhancement have heightened frustrations.
Creation was concluded but continued in Christ; the author and finisher
Whatever was lost at the fall, redemption supplies; corrupted in Adam, perfected in Christ. The word of God creates brand new men from humans or the old man.
You are no longer dust, human, flesh or carnal; new men in Christ.
The body recieves life again; the voice and the presence of God is restored. The same word of creation recreates, reveals and sustains the new creation. The life of God is not independent but interdependent on the word of God.
Identity is not from popular opinion, but from the word of creation.
The word of God is your life, dust is not your source. Creation, recreated!
I am made by his word and I live by his word and not for dust.
