Genesis 2:7

Reflections on Today’s Verse

God does amazing things with ashes and dust. Real dust. Real man. “Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven” (1 Cor. 15:49). God made man from dust (Genesis 2:7). Men made a tower from bricks (Genesis 11:3). That tower is dust, but man still stands.

There is not one particle of dust or one breaking of your heart beyond the control and redemption of Jesus. This is why we believe in a literal 6 days, actual dust, a real talking serpent, a real whale, a genuine virgin birth, a physical death, a literal, physical resurrection and the second coming. I believe—do you?

Though created in God’s image, Adam failed. Yet, Jesus nailed. And all by sovereign power and decree–God’s grace prevailed. The minds of seraphs cannot comprehend, nor can the voices of archangels tell the glories of our Savior. How much less a man made of dust! Thank God for the Gospel today!

Today’s Prayer

Father, we are dust. Though created perfectly out of nothing but dust, we sinned. Father, our representative, Adam, the literal and historical person, fell and we have all fallen since. Father, we praise you that the Second Adam, Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, came to live the life we couldn’t live and die the death we couldn’t die. All for your glory and our salvation. O to be broken before the dying Christ, to lie in the dust of undeserving, and wIth exquisite joy. Father, thank you making us unique despite our sin. We love you and praise you forever. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
