Topic: Mixed Gene – The Bane Of Destiny [Seeds of Destiny 14 October 2018 Devotional]
Scripture: And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. 1 Kings 18:21
Thought For The Day: Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise.
Gene is a unit of heredity which is transferred from a parent to an offspring. It is responsible for similarity in manner or attitude of a parent and his/her children. Just as a son is expected to have a peculiar character trait that is in consonance with that of his father, a Christian is also expected to manifest the character and attributes of Christ.
However, the tragedy in our days is that there are many Christians with mixed-genes; mixture of heaven and earth, mixed gene of spirituality and carnality. They are like half Israelites and half Egyptians. They are spiritual mix-ups. They have the origin of heaven but the identity of the earth. It is true that they are Christians, but their identity says otherwise. This is why many people are in church for donkey years but see no result because their sinful character is still intact. Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise. Your identity determines your destiny; your nature determines your future; your attitude determines your outcome.
In Genesis 2:19, while referring to Moses, the daughters of Jethro told their father that an Egyptian helped them. The question is, was Moses an Egyptian? No! But they called him an Egyptian probably because of the way he dressed and behaved.
Beloved, a mistaken identity is a misplaced destiny. But that shall not be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: Any Christianity that does not affect your identity is iniquity and calamity in disguise.
1. If you want to follow Jesus Christ and be a genuine Christian, come out clearly and be one.
2. Avoid every anti-Christ behaviour in your life; refuse to put one leg in Church and another in the world.
3. Read and reflect on the teachings of today again
Prayer: Lord, make me a reflection of Your Image upon the earth, and let the fragrance of Your Presence flow out of my life. Make me a true ambassador of Heaven on earth, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
