“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (John 1:1-3).
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit – as a community- breathed life into all things way back at Creation. Jesus is the Living Word: He continues to breathe life into those that surrender their lives to Him. This month we begin “Words that Breathe” – a 3 month journey in the Gospel of John. Just as God breathed life into Adam, Jesus breathed life into His Disciples in John chapter 20:21-22.
‘Peace to you! As the Father sent me, I also send you.’ And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’ (John 20:21-22, NKJV)
