Food for thought..Made alive

alive in christ

You get a lot of who you are from your genetics. You are a random mixture of your parents. Yes, we try to deny it but it does come through and out of us more and more as we grow. Have you had people tell you “you are just like your mum” or “you are just like your father”? What are they meaning? That you are displaying an internal characteristic that has been intrinsically inherited by you that joins you to a specific group of people. There are a few autoimmune issues in my family.

As much as I would wish to deny having these issues I cannot deny the symptoms. You see it’s in my blood. Literally,…we have issues with our blood. How ironic, as we inherited the autoimmune disease of sin from Adam just as we inherit diseases from our parents. We are linked. Remember the Punnet squares? They could give you the possibilities of outcomes with a few pieces of info. We have gotten the genes of  ‘sin’ and they cannot be medicated away. These are not somethings that you try harder to maintain.  In order to beat this you need a blood transfusion. A donor. A willing person who will give up their blood for you to save you. We search all over and miss the best thing: Christ has already done so! His pure blood for your diseased blood. His perfection for your frailty. Why carry on like you are when you can be free? 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 “For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
