The Spirit Breathes Life

In that day when the first man formed from the dust of the ground ate of that tree with the woman taken out of his own flesh to live as one flesh with him, the holy breath of God was knocked right out of them. And they began to surely die. ... 
In the day you are forgiven, you once again receive the very breath of life. And this is what the church, the office of the ministry, and even your Baptism are and do for you. They give you the Spirit who breathes life into you where once there was only death, the death of the sinner.
