DNA; you’ve probably heard this term many times in school and have hopefully come to understand how it holds the code to our genetics. But, how does this pertain to who we are and what we have received in our relationship with God? One of the greatest things that we have received from being in relationship with God is Freedom. “So if the son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)”. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross we now have freedom in Him and have the right to be called Sons and Daughters of God. We are no longer slaves to bondage and sin, and our genetic make-up has been re-written. The masks that many of us wear no longer need to be used; we can now be free to be who God has called us to be and walk with purpose as children of light.

Challenge: Take some time and reflect on whether you are truly walking in Freedom as a son or daughter of God. Meditate on John 8:36.
