Topic: ‘ ..FOR THOU ART DUST..’ part 5.
Text : Genesis 2:7
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.
In part 4 of this teaching I told you, God is the potter while we are the clay, the potter is set to make each of us into vessels of honour if we can surrender to Him. In this part 5, I want to discuss the content of the vessel.
It is important to know that it is the content of a vessel that adds value to it, as God is intending to make us vessels He can use, our content as vessels matters. Let me start from Adam, Adam was molded from dust, clay, after which God breath into his nostrils, this breath gave Adam life, it is that same breath that gave us life, in fact, that breath is our life.
I want to make emphasis on this breath of life; the breath is the breath of God, and I believe you will agree with me that God is not human but Spirit, everything about God is spiritual, it therefore means that the breath of God is spiritual.
So when God was breathing into Adam He was releasing His Spirit, it is this Spirit that turned the statute molded from clay into a living soul called Adam, so in others words Adam and we all are dead beings without this Spirit, THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Let me clear your doubt here, look at this scripture: 2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. It is God’s Spirit that brings life into the statute molded, it is this Spirit that brings life into us. Many are dead financially, martially, spiritually, life has gone out of many.
A lot of people have given up on their glorious destiny, it is a sign of deadness, a lot of businesses are dead, if you are among these classes of people you must understand first of all that God’s Spirit is meant to give you life, you can’t have life without the Holy Spirit, this is not a question religion, or either you want to serve God or not, that is how God has designed it, His Spirit gives us life, if don’t desire the Holy Spirit, your life is limited.
Probably you don’t still understand or believe what I am sharing here, let me come out this way; when God was telling Adam in Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Notice the phrase ‘..thou shall surely die ‘, God meant when you eat the forbidden fruit you shall die, meaning that breath I put in you, THE HOLY SPIRIT, will leave you. You will notice that Adam and Eve didn’t die physically, but the Spirit left them, the became walking corpse.
No wonder the Psalmist said in Psalms 51: 11..take not thy holy spirit from me. He knew that that is his life, I want to close by asking you; Do you have the Holy Spirit?
* Fill me Lord with your Spirit.
