I would guess that everybody knows that we are dust and to dust we will be. Even in life we grew up accumulating things and the older we go the more we realize that we will be leaving those things and even while we are living we learned that we have to throw away things . The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
Let us look at the above verse. It said we brought nothing and we can carry nothing out. But it does not say we are nothing, is it not ? We are something because God created us.God is our Source.Since God is our Source or Creator, there must be some reason why God created us.
In Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathedinto his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
In the above verse, we became a living soul because God gave man the breath of life. Did we notice that that God gave man or us the breath of life ?
Let us look at another verse: Genesis 2:15,16,17 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it or to keep it.And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.
We learned that Adam and Eve disobeyed so man died or eventually died. In Genesis 3:22-24 The verses mentioned about the tree of life, that if man eat, he will live for ever. But God kept man from it because man already disobeyed and have the knowledge of good and evil.
Now let us ask , how can man who is dust, who got the breath of life and disobeyed God and was told they will die, have a better future ? How can we live or even have eternal life ? The answer is in Jesus Christ. I hope by this time in your life you already know. If you don't know yet , pray to God for Him to let you know or have somebody tell you about Jesus Christ. I hope you'll see how much we really need Jesus Christ in our life.
