Just Dirt

Without God's Word, man is just dirt—only dirt. But with His Word, man is a living, breathing, productive being—the very image of His creator. As such, he was created to know only good, to eat only good, to breathe only good, to live only good, to produce only good.

Enter the father of all lies. He tempts the man, whom God has formed out of the dust of the ground to receive only His Word and the seed of life that He continually sows. How?By placing before him that which God did not create for man to eat--or even know.

The result? Man surely dies....

... Without the life bearing seed of the Word of God, everything else of this created earth--man included--is just dirt. Man goes back to being only a bunch of lifeless dust.

... Enter the Son of God, the Word made flesh to dwell among us—the Word of God Himself--becomes dirt. He takes on human flesh formed out of the dust of the ground and gives it life again....
