Breathing is important. Ask someone dragging around an oxygen tank, about the importance of their oxygen.
My friend Tina Hunt gave the most wonderful analogy to share with people who say they don’t need a God you can’t see, touch or feel. She quietly asks them the following question. Can you see the oxygen you breathe? Of course the answer is no. Then she will ask, “Do you need oxygen? If they’ve been to school; they know the answer is yes. Oxygen is mandatory for every human being.
You can’t see, feel or touch God; but do you need Him? Of course you do. The need for God is as much as the need for air. Why do we need God? He created us for fellowship with HIm. He’s the air we breathe.
Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. His lifeless body went from lifeless to full of life. The Lord breathed life into the first man Adam and he became a living soul. Breath comes from the One who gave you lungs to purify the air you take into them. Healthy lungs are vital to sustaining life; however, without oxygen even the healthiest of lungs cannot do the work for which they were created.
When people refuse to accept Christ, they are refusing abundant life on earth and eternal life in heaven. In essence, it’s choosing death and darkness over life and light. Breath of Heaven, we acknowledge You as Lord and Savior. “You are the air we breathe. Your very presence living in us.”
Prayer in Motion:
I love You Lord and worship You in Spirit and in Truth. I thank You for the air I breathe. I do not take it or You lightly nor for granted. In Jesus Name. Amen
