”The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the LORD blows upon it; surely the people is grass. The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever.” (Isaiah 40:7-8)
Thus says the Prophet Isaiah… And it is true. UNTIL the Incarnation. For when the Son – the Word – of God was made flesh, then all flesh is no longer as ephemeral as the grass. Because of the Incarnation, He who shared in our humanity gives us the chance to partake of His Divinity. Because of the Incarnation of the Son of God, when the breath of the LORD blows on the flesh, it is quickened unto eternal life.
