3/13: Match God’s DNA


When my husband and I visited Arlington National Cemetery several years ago, we were eager to witness the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The tour guide told our group that servicemen from several wars were buried there, but there would never be another soldier added. Why? Thanks to DNA technology, there would never again be unidentified remains. Our country will always be able to identify and honor our war dead because our servicemen and women are required to have health records on file with the government containing something enabling scientists to discover who they are using DNA.

What if there was a way to use technology to identify Christians? If there were, the spiritual DNA (Divine Noticeable Attachment) test that would identify us with the family of God is found in Mark 3:34-35. It says, “And He [Jesus] looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, ‘Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.’”

When the Holy Spirit looks through His holy microscope at our DNA, He should see the fact that we do the will of God. Our actions would show our divine attachment to our heavenly Father because our relationship to Jesus Christ causes us to act like Him, our big Brother. In other words, doing the will of God identifies us as part of the family of God.

What does your spiritual DNA say of you?
