While Genesis 1:26 reminds us that God made mankind in His image, when you are born again by God’s Spirit, you receive His spiritual DNA. John 1:12 explains: “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God.” And as one of His children, you resemble your Father! You have His genes.
If you want to know what that means in daily living, look to Jesus. He perfectly modeled what the Father’s DNA is like. Jesus was forgiving, obedient, humble and generous. When you follow in His steps and exhibit these traits, people can tell you have your Dad’s DNA.
Understanding your spiritual gene pool is vital to living an overcoming Christian life. If you don't know who you really are, you can never experience the fullness of abundant life in Christ. Once you know who you are, the devil will never be able to lie to you again and you will walk in power, victory and freedom!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
