You Can Break the Cycle (2)

You Can Break the Cycle (2)
‘…He spat on the ground and made clay with
the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the
blind man with the clay.’ John 9:6 NKJV
Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the
National Hispanic Christian Leadership
Conference, points out that your DNA is in
your saliva and that when Jesus spat, this
blind man received a divine DNA transfer. The
fact of the matter is that sin is in our DNA and
that’s why Jesus goes back to the root of our
problem! Understand this: God doesn’t merely
treat your symptoms; He goes back to the
source of your problem in order to set you
free from it. To change the fruit, He changes
the root. This man never had the ability to
see; he was born blind and needed a creative
miracle—and that’s exactly what he got.
Physical miracle and spiritual miracle—a total
transformation. Our God is awesome, isn’t
He? Do you know why Jesus came? ‘…To bind
up the bro-kenhearted, to proclaim freedom
for the captives and release from darkness for
the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the
Lord’s favour…to comfort all who mourn…to
bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of
ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and
a garment of praise instead of a spirit of de-
spair…’ (Isaiah 61:1–3 NIV) It doesn’t matter
whether your parents contributed to your
problem or you simply made bad choices in
life, Jesus can set you free, make you whole,
and give you a new life. Jesus didn’t blame
this man or his parents. That’s because God
has no desire for your condemna-tion; His
desire is for your transformation.
