Amazing how God designed life. All of creation is amazing. That is why it is too much for the intellectual to take in. Nothing can really “explain” the ultimate truth that God is the Source. It takes faith. Well, amen. Have you ever stopped to think about “life is in the blood”?
Blood That Possesses Its Own Life
So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.” --John 6:53-56
I was thinking how the heart must pump the blood to the lungs in order for the blood to carry oxygen throughout the body and keep it alive. The life is in the blood, and that life is oxygen. Giving someone mouth-to-mouth resuscitation is restoring his life. It makes sense that God breathed life into man and man became a living soul. The breath of God, coming from outside man, is the life. In fact, all of creation is receiving life from God moment by moment. He is all around us. What if we had blood that had its own oxygen and did not need an outside source? Then we could live without breathing! In a spiritual sense this is exactly what we have, the blood of Jesus that possesses life in itself, not requiring an outside source of life like our blood does. The blood of Christ will allow our spirit and soul to go on living when the body is destroyed and the world as a source is gone.

Think about it…God just simply breathed life into man and man became a living soul. And there became a man. Before that, there was no man. That is more than our simple minds can really comprehend. But, it is significant that life came from the breath of God.
And God put that life into our blood, which with the heart God gave us He designed that we would pump that life throughout our body. Now we breathe in life from without (life that God gives to creation moment by moment), and God distributes it throughout our body by the organs He designed. Amazing!
What is more amazing is the spiritual life that God gives us through the blood of Christ! Eternal life. Everlasting life. Nothing can take that life from us…ever. And it doesn’t take this world to be the source. Well, amen!
