If he should set his heart to it and gather to himself his spirit and his breath, all flesh would perish together, and man would return to dust.
Something to think about: Every human being is sparked into being by God’s breath of life. It ignites their spirit and causes them to live. It sustains us throughout our lives. Once that breath of life leaves the body for the final time, you are either reunited with Christ in heaven or eternally separated from Him. No second chances.
This is why Jesus gave us the Great Commission. Our hearts must be broken for those who don’t know him. Our hearts must also have compassion for every living being, for they are sustained by the same breath.
