God first imparted His breath. It should have been enough, but humanity fell. Not wanting to be apart from His Creation, He gave His only Son. Then, he gave His Spirit. He has given all of Himself to us that He made.
He gave His breath before we knew sin. He gave His Son while we were in sin. He gives His Spirit even as we continue to sin. This is grace. This is the love of God. Unmatchable!
