“When a baby is inside, still unborn, it knows there’s something out there, but it’s not quite sure what. It hears this voice,” Mom said. We were looking at pictures of a newly born baby and all the sweet love her family was showering on her. “And similarly, we also hear a voice. We know something greater is to come, but we don’t know completely what it will be,” she continued.

1 Corinthians 13:12 “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” (KJV)

1 John 3:2 “Dear friends, now are we children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He is.” (NIV)

It got me thinking what being “born again” really means. In a way, we’re born again positionally, but boy, practically, it will be a whole different matter. In the same way, a baby is given life (he or she is already conceived), but hasn’t yet met those givers of life. I’ve always thought people should count those extra nine months in their age. After all, babies have been living ever since that beginning moment. And so have we. Celebrate life.
