birth pains…

I have had the great pleasure of being nearby on some great births over the years. More recently my own grandchildren’s births have brought into focus all of God’s great plans for life and how precious life is to Him. He created life and protects it as only Abba Father can, with the utmost care. As we stood on the side of the road during Life Chain I saw those who honor life like the Father, and those who just don’t understand how important it is to look at life like God does. How we view eternity many times brings the importance of life into focus more than anything else. We know that even though we are living and breathing right now, without spiritual regeneration we are dead, yet breathing. Eternity takes what a lost world misses and brings the essence of life back to one person, God the Father. We must look at life like He does and share that message with the world! Why?

If you will read Matthew 24:1-8 this week you will see that the birthing process for Christ’ return is revealed in a parallel form to child bearing. Our Heavenly Father shows us the picture vividly through our own physical birth, and then transfers it to our Spiritual Birth. He ties the temporal with the eternal and they fit. The only problem is “Do we see the fit?” We have so much going on around us and it is all happening so quickly we might just miss the warning signs and be caught unaware. God does not want us unaware, just as much as He wants us to trust Him. As worshippers we have been called out to make a difference as God’s plan continues to unfold before our very eyes. A plan that is perfect and will be revealed with many more signs and wonders.

Just as my eyes were reopened to all it takes to birth a new baby, our eyes are seeing the signs of the birth of a new day for all of us. A day we anticipate with eagerness and faith. Even though we are seeing birth pains all around us every day, may we look to the end of the process and the culmination of the promises of God’s Word. We can trust Him through it all. As we lead in worship, let us lead with a fervency that can only be powered by Him, our Creator. All glory to God. He is truly our great Redeemer.  May we lift our praises to Him.

The Pilgrimage continues….

David Warren

Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

–Matthew 24:1-8
