IS YOUR DNA STILL POSITIVE?
Read: Genesis 1:24-27
Genesis 1:24-27 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
MEMORISE: Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth” (Genesis 1:26)
On this World Health day, it is not out of place to know that DNA is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. God Himself is the Author of genetics, for by His commands, every beast and fish multiply after their respective kinds, even till today. Though, man was the last to be created, he was created in the image of the divine–Trinity. However, the devil robbed him, and he lost the image of God in him. The joy is that Jesus came to restore him to the original image that carries the divine DNA, i.e. after being born again: ‘But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many’ (Rom. 5:15).
Jesus came to impute on as many as would receive Him ‘the kind of God’ which should make us behave like God (cf. Rom. 8:29). But, oh! We are not like Jesus (CACGHB. 524). Why? Corruption and rebellion that remove the kind of Jesus from Pastors, Evangelists, Christians. They have sold off their images, and now have upon themselves satanic images in dressing, hairstyles, attitudes, body tattoos, music, teachings, dance styles, etc. The question now is, Is your DNA still positive even after you are born again?
It is high time you offloaded every weight from your life, else you miss the mark when the Master eventually comes to select only those who bear His mark. Paul says, ‘From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus’ (Gal. 6:17). Some believers face unnecessary troubles that they sometimes erroneously think are persecutions for Christ’s sake. However, in the actual sense, they are being punished for the prince of this world’s godless loads with many of them. May we receive grace to be changed for His glory, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
1. Lord, please remove every satanic mark and symbol from my life.
2. Lord, infuse Your precious, holy blood in my entire system so that the ‘DNA’ of sin would not have any place in my life.
3. Pray for CAC Odusona Region, our father in the Lord, the Superintendent, and its officers at the various levels, as led by the Spirit of God.
