Daily Fountain 2017 - The Genetics Of Justification

Tuesday February 21

Bible Reading:     Rom. 5: 12 - 21

Topic:         The Genetics Of Justification

Genetics is the study of the transfer of traits or character from the parents to the offspring.

In the matter of redemption, there are two genetic Founding Fathers - Adam and Christ.

Adam represents the entire human race while Christ represents the new breed of God's Children.

When Adam sinned, genetically speaking, the whole human race sinned - vs. 12 - 14. When Christ came, it was the same principle; by faith, we were all included in Him - when He died, was buried and rose again - v. 17

Therefore just as you were genetically included in your forefather (Adam) before you were born, so that you inherited His characteristics, in the same way God included the whole world in Christ, as the Founding Father of a regenerated people, so that whoever would come to Him by faith would inherit His Spiritual Genes.

That is the genetics of justification, and by such revealed understanding, we have victory over sin, the world and the devil.

So, you are genetically new when by faith you are found in Christ, as a result, sin shall not have dominion over you ..... Rom. 6: 14

Lord, show me the meaning and mystery of being in Christ, Amen

Memory verse:   Rom. 5: 18
"Therefore, as by the offence of one, judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness One, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life"
