Air is typically defined as a mixture of nitrogen, oxygen and minute amounts of other gases that surrounds the earth and forms its atmosphere. Air is colorless, tasteless and odorless. More than half of everything living needs air to live especially humans since we use air for breathing. When we inhale, air rushes into our lungs to fill them where exhaling is simply air leaving our lungs. We can only live for six minutes without air before our brain begins to shut down. Conclusively, air in comparison to water plays a significant role in our life too. So after doing some research, I found thirty-one different definitions of air. All these definition converted the words association from a noun to an adjective. Above all definitions I found one most profound. In this case air is a noun and is the peculiar look, appearance and bearing of a person. I would use this as a mere description of God’s characteristic. He gives life to all and He’s so godly that He provides us the perfect amount of air to live as well. God gave every living thing a purpose and along with its purpose He gave it breath. Every single breath we take is to live out the purpose in which God gave us for our life. With that enlightenment it takes me to Act 17:28 that says, “For in Him we live, and move and have our being”… (Clearly this proclaims that God is the source of all life). Acceptance of His Son in our life permits His spirit to live in us. This gives us a different approach to life wherein we want our Creator who holds the key to our purpose. He gave us the air we breathe. With air, He gave us purpose. With purpose, He gave us His Son. With His Son, He gave us life. In all that, I’m convinced that He IS the very air we breathe.
The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. Hebrews 1:3 (NLT)
