Genesis 2:7 says, “the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground [——-and ——] breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
I wonder if just after forming man from the dust of the ground, God looked down at the lifeless body of Adam and held his breath for a moment…” One more breath meant life for the man and death for his Son. Yet he did it anyway. In my better moments I would like to think there was no hesitation and no temptation to avoid all the heartache and pain by just walking awa. There is no doubt that there was a realization of what the cost would be. And he still did it! He exhaled! And Adam stood tall and Christ took the fall. Praise the Lord!
