DNA, Do We Look Like Our Father?

 

We just finished celebrating Mother’s Day. This had me thinking about our DNA.

DNA is what makes us. Our DNA forms from our mothers and fathers. Physically, it tells us how we are going to look, male or female, eye color, etc.  DNA can also tell you about how long you will live.  But enough about physical DNA, let’s talk about our SPIRITUAL DNA.

In John 3:3-8, Jesus says we need to be reborn. Once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we have a new DNA. 1 John 3:9 says,“Whoever has been born of God does not sin…”  So we turn away from our past sinful lives, our old DNA from Adam and Eve and we are a new creation.

Remember how I mentioned earlier that physical DNA can also tell you how long you will live?  So does your new spiritual DNA. We now have eternal life! I also mentioned that your DNA tells you how you are going to look. With spiritual DNA, we need to look more like Jesus, not in the physical form but by our actions.

Do we love God with all our heart? Do we love one another (unconditionally)?  Are we feeding the poor, visiting the elderly, visiting prisoners?  We now have our Heavenly Father’s DNA, and yes we have eternal life, but now it’s time that we start looking like Him!

Lord, I pray that we start to look like You and that we even sound like You.  Let us be a clear representation of who our Father is. When people see us, let them see Jesus! Amen!
