Today, lots of people, Trudy and I included, are doing more research into our family history. So far, we have not had our DNA analyzed, although it would be fun! My family is interesting and Trudy has actually done more work on my family tree than I have. I do know that my great-grandfather fought in the Civil War and that one of my grandfathers (6 generations removed) fought in the Revolutionary war—on both sides! On my dad’s side, there is a castle in England that is part of our family history and one of my grandfather’s was knighted after returning from the Crusades!
But how do we determine our spiritual DNA or is there such a thing? God made a covenant with Abraham and Sarah that contained 4 points: I will make you a great nation, I will bless your name, all who bless you I will bless, and those whom cruse you I will curse. (Genesis 12:1-3) Notice that Abraham did not ask for this, God just offered it to him. Today, our spiritual DNA can be traced back to Abraham. Today, because of Jesus, we too, are now “Children of God” and we have Abraham’s DNA to prove it! Amen.
