Tuesday, August 8 - Life Abundant

Read John 20-19-23

Jesus (and the whole story) is so lusciously weird, that it's hard not to believe. He offers them peace, and while he says this, he breathes on them and says, "Receive the Holy Spirit."

When Jesus, the Word that was with God in the very beginning, breathed on the disciples, it is reminiscent of God's breath of life in Genesis 2:7, and this, in turn indicate a new, spiritual beginning -- a rebirth, of sorts.

What areas of your life need the breath of Jesus to flow over them, making them a new creation?
