1Co 15v22 – Choosing your ancestors

I remember a really good sportsman being asked why he was so good. He replied, “It takes two things. Lots of dedication, but more importantly, choosing the right parents.” He was jokingly referring to how he was lucky to have inherited good sports genes from his parents. We all inherit characteristics from our parents. However, while some inherit good sports ability or high intelligence, we all inherit one common thing from our first parents, Adam and Eve – the death gene. It does not matter what other benefits you may have inherited; the impact of the death gene is greater than them all. That’s pretty bleak news. We can work as hard as we want. Rise to become the greatest in our field. But the death gene means it all ends in nothing. This would be sad news if there weren’t another ancestor we can also inherit from – Jesus. “Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.” (1 Corinthians 15:22). Now that’s good news. The impact of the life gene from Christ is greater than the death gene from Adam. However, there’s a decision. By nature, we are related to Adam, but to be related to Jesus is our choice. Choose the right parent. This time, it’s not a joke. It means death or eternal life.
