And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
I love Paul’s words here to the church at Rome. God breathes life into our mortal bodies, allowing us to carry on. Foundational to our understanding of God as the Creator is a deep sense that he is still living and breathing and creating today. Not only is he still creating, but he is being reflected when we create. We bear the image of the very spirit that brought about creation, who redeemed all creation through the suffering king, and who breathes life into our mortal bodies. So when we live our lives, and create our masterpieces, there is something so much larger going on. Our lives are a precursor, and our creations are a reflection to the God who was and is and is to come. Amen.
