The Mysterious Wonder of the Unborn
Luke 1:39–45
January 22, 2017

INTRODUCTION:

I. Historical background and context.

 


II. The continuity of human life is assumed. Luke 1:41,43

 

 


III. God is already in communion with the unborn. Luke 1:41, 44

 

 


IV. Two truths:


A. Pregnancy and birth teach us to depend on God. Romans 8:32, Phillipians 4:13,19


B Pregnancy and birth provide a picture of God’s relationship to us. John 3:3

 


Questions for reflection:
How is the experience of the unborn both wonderful and mysterious?
What might we learn about God’s relationship to us in terms of our spiritual birth?
How might we better express God’s compassion for those who find themselves in crisis?
