Breath of Life

Posted 26th April 2012 at 11:42 AM by coachboyd1982
Not long ago, I was teaching the respiratory system of the human body in my AP Biology class. We discussed the difference between oxygen rich blood in our arteries and oxygen deficient blood in our veins. We talked about the process of blood picking up oxygen in the lungs and dumping off carbon dioxide for us to breathe out. One of my students asked the question about CPR. They questioned why do we breathe into their mouth, if what we breathe out has little oxygen. Why would that not do more damage than good. I explained that even when we breathe out, there is still oxygen, albeit a very small amount, but it is still there. And that is better than nothing at all. This got me to thinking about God's breathing. And I did a little research and this is what I found.

Genesis 2:7
"Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."

God breathed life into Adam. God formed Adam from dust. He formed everything that would be needed to live, and then gave him the "breath of life." He caused air to move into his body, so that he could live. There are two main ways, I think, that you could teach this breath of life. One, you could talk about the physical. Without a good supply of oxygen, we would cease to exist. We would be nothing more than flesh and bone with no life. We can see this example in Ezekiel in the vision that was given to him from God.
