God is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God’s image. Each of us that pass from our mother’s womb and reach our first breathe become a child of God. The first breath one takes is God’s breath.
In the beginning and still today God formed man from the dust of the ground. Then breath was breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being (Genesis 2:6-7)
Watching a new baby come into this world is truly a blessing. Seeing the new creation take it’s first breath of life and knowing where that breath comes from is truly a remarkable and humbling sight.
God loves us all regardless of our sins and earthly behavior. He provided a gift for us to use that will bring us to him in the end. This gift is the Holy Spirit. The same breath God gave us the first time we are born, is the same breath available through the Holy Spirit throughout our life.
Being born of the spirit is our rebirth and it is from the breath of God. This breath is something very close to you. It is as close to you as your very breath!
