Earlier this year, I was asked by a pregnancy resource center to be a part of their annual fundraising banquet. I was, at the time, writing for Glory: A Call to Worship at Christmas, and the Christmas story was at the forefront of my mind. I realized that the Christmas story is the most profound pro-life story there is.
By choosing to come as a helpless baby in the womb, Jesus gave tremendous affirmation of the value of our littlest ones. His cousin John leapt in the womb when Mary, pregnant with Jesus, walked into the room. God is glorified by the life that no one yet sees. He is glorified by the miracle of conception. He is glorified by the tiny person who has not yet taken a breath. He is glorified by the little heart beat that no one has yet heard.
He could have come any other way, but He chose to be glorified by humbling himself as child. Later in the Gospels, he calls us to approach Him as a child, following in His amazing example.
This song is from the album Glory: A Call to Worship at Christmas, available for pre-order now. Album releases November 1, 2016.
