Your Spiritual DNA
Romans 8:14-17 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” (KJV)
The DNA that is found in our bodies is a self-replicating material, and is the carrier of genetic information. DNA characteristics or qualities originate from a child’s parents and can be called a person’s “blue print”.
Verse 16 in the above scripture reads “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.” When we are born again, the Holy Spirit confirms with our spirit that because we are born again, we have become a child of God. When believers become children of God we then take on God’s spiritual DNA. God is our Abba Father and we have His “blue print” John 1:12-13 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (NKJV)
When a believer takes on God’s DNA, we become a reflection of Him and others can see the Jesus in us. We are the express image of God. Hebrews 1:3 “who being being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person” A reflection in a mirror is the duplicate image of the object that is in front of the mirror.
When people from our past see us after we have become a child of God, the comment is sometimes made “you look different now, you don’t look the same as before.” That’s because your Spiritual DNA has given you a new presence, and others can now see the Jesus in you.
1st Peter 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; 10Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (KJV)
Because our Abba Father is not a respecter of persons, “Then Peter opened his mouth and said: In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality”. Acts 10:34 (NKJV) all that are a child of God can have His DNA.
Galatians 3:26-29 “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”. (KJV)
” We give thanks to you O God for not being partial to your children which allows Your DNA to run in our veins. It is my prayer that your children who are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; will live each day in manner that reflects You and Your glory. Thank you for your grace, peace and mercy. In Jesus name Amen!
