Just as a child comes into existence through the DNA of his or her biological father, every child born into the family of God comes into existence through the DNA of God. In spirit, Yahweh put something of his into us that makes us look like him, perceive as him, and imitate him. In his first epistle, John describes those born of God as those who love people with an agape type of love. Children of God are those who overcome the world and refuse to flow in a direction away from that of God, even if that is the flow of of everything around them. Sin is not a habitual way of life and practice of God’s children. Sin may remain, but it does not reign over Yahweh’s child.
