Genesis 2:7 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Genesis 2:7

Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. 

 

As I was listening to one of my pastor friends talk yesterday, I was thinking about why God created us. He didn’t create us to enslave us, He didn’t create us to attend to Him, He didn’t create us to judge us. But He did create us to love us and to be part of His family! God wanted a huge family in Heaven with Him, so He created a man! They hung out for a while, and then, I believe, God saw Adam was lonely and made Eve!

 


To me, here is where it gets interesting, because I believe God knew that by creating Eve, His and Adam’s relationship would never be the same, but He loves us so much that He put His desires to the side so that we would not feel alone! God chose to suffer for us rather than be selfish and keep us all to Himself!! He knew the price that would have to be paid, and yet He did it anyway!! So that you and I don’t have to walk this journey alone!!

 

I personally need to learn to love like this, putting others before myself even when it’s not easy!! To learn to love like this is to truly learn what God’s heart looks like!! This, to me, is true love and a great comfort to know that God never wanted us to be alone, and although it cost Him dearly, He gladly did it for you and I!!!

 

God bless, I love you all, and glory to God!!
