Have you ever been told that you look or sound like another member of your family – perhaps your mother or father or siblings? There is a good reason for that because family members share DNA. When you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you received spiritual DNA from God and just as natural siblings look alike, spiritual brothers and sisters should act just like their Father God.
You became a new creation when the Holy Spirit came to live inside of you and the Spirit of God should control you and cause you to act differently than those who do not know the Lord. God is love, therefore, Christians are to love everyone and only the Spirit of God can make that possible. God’s gift to us created a newness of life that was made for those who choose to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh.
You belong to Christ because He paid the price to remove you from the curse of sin which is death and moved you into an eternal realm where you will live forever. If your life is not your own, make sure that you are living the life the Spirit of God is leading you to. Die to yourself and let the Spirit within you live a life that reflects your heavenly DNA.
There is a new you inside of you! Old things have passed away and you are not the same person you use to be. You can do all things through Christ who lives in you. Encourage yourself today and remember that the Spirit inside of you is bigger and better than anything found in the natural.
