From a baby to 33 years
As our doctor delivered little Taka, (all 3,238 grams of him!) I was again stunned at how little, vulnerable, and weak a new baby is - and yet how precious beyond understanding! This little baby, born just as Jesus was, cannot do a thing for himself and yet a baby like this would one day deliver the whole world from sin and death! A baby... this is the whole reason for Christmas!!
The good news of Jesus Christ is that in weakness, by God's strength, we become strong. By His power, we are born again, not by our own will or strength, into an amazing, eternal and an abundant life in Him. By His strength we can also go on also to do great things for His glory. Either that, or we can waste our one little life on worldly pursuits that do not last.
May the power of God's story change your heart also, and your life, and lead many to praise God's great Name because of you.
This new baby story - a story of adoption - from my friend Zach, also really touched my heart. I hope it warms yours as well.
