While no two of us are exactly alike physically, it would appear we have the same spiritual DNA, according to the Scriptures. Like Adam and all of humanity to follow him, the image of the Godhead has been passed down.
This realization is captivating me, I’m revived on the inside as I realize who I am through my Heavenly Father !
We have long identified with the blood of Jesus as it covers and cleanses us, and we understand having righteousness by faith alone. But can we fathom the untold significance of having our Father's DNA?
No longer do I see the fruit of the Spirit as something we "will" by our self-effort or following the law. Rather, I see that in my DNA, God has already placed genes of love, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. They are waiting to be activated by the Holy Spirit.
I no longer merely confess that I am the righteousness of Christ. I realize that with His DNA in me through His blood, I could be nothing else. I realize the attributes of His DNA reside in me—whether dormant or active.
