To see a newborn child is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. We have right before us the picture of sinless innocence. As we look upon this child we can’t help but think of the love and support he/she will need to make it in this life. There is complete and utter helplessness but a life full of hope just waiting to be loved and taught. This reminds me of how I should be feeling each and every time I am blessed to see a newborn Christian. This person is now once again a sinless individual in the sight of God who needs to be nurtured and taught. He/she is the hope and future of the Lord’s Church and should be precious in our lives. Let us all respect the gift of all newborns both into a physical family and into the Lord’s Church. They are a gift from God and an opportunity for us help do what God expects us to, train them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
