Thanks, John!

Recently, I emailed a very good friend of mine, John, one of my postings entitled, Life Is the Only Choice! I knew he would like the pro-life message, but I wanted to get his opinion on the song, since we are both amateur musicians and have similar tastes in music.

John certainly supported the anti-abortion message, and as I suspected, liked the song as well. Contained in his response, John used a phrase I found to be very profound, which was “The real message is lets breath life into the living!!!! “

The context in which John used this phrase was in his reference to how we must defend life and cherish life at all stages, not just the lives of the unborn, which by no means are any less precious.

What struck me about the phrase was its application to evangelization, and the numerous references in Scripture illustrating God’s ability to create and restore both physical and spiritual life from His very breath.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that "16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

As followers of Christ, we are to proclaim the Gospel message to all the world., which in essence does breath life into the living, or perhaps more appropriately, the dead.

Thanks John!

    Hi Billy, Just reading your blog about Breathing Life into the Living and found John's statement very profound since alot of people on this earth, walk through life impervious to their surroundings. In other words, oblivious to what God has placed on this earth for all of mankind to enjoy. Your friend Billy S.

  2. Billy,
    Thanks for the comment! You're right! God reveals Himself to us constantly in all the wonder and splendor of His beautiful creation!
