The DNA of God

"The seed is the Word of God."
Luke 8:11

I read the following this morning in a little devotional I use written by a messianic pastor:

'What is a seed and what does it contain? The seed contains a code, a code of life, DNA. It is given for reproduction, so the seed contains the nature in biology of the seed given.

The word of God is the seed. It is the DNA; it has the DNA of God. It transmits the nature of God to the one who receives it."

What a powerful image of the work of Scripture. By implanting it in our lives we are allowing God to form His nature within us. His life becomes our life. His image is recreated in us.
