Seeds of Faith

Every mother eagerly awaits the day when she can say, “I felt the baby move.” That movement is a concrete testament that the life inside is actually a human being. Kick, punch, twirl, and swim.

Now imagine if you could actually know what your baby was responding too.

After Mary found out she was bearing the Savior of the world, she went to visit her relative Elizabeth, who also was having a child in her old age. When Mary greeted Elizabeth, Elizabeth’s baby, John the Baptizer, leapt for joy in her womb.

Our Savior’s presence in the womb of Mary caused joy to the infant John in the womb. Why? Because salvation is being fulfilled and he came into contact with his Savior.

Come into contact with our Savior Jesus and even infants in the womb can leap for joy!

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Nebraska. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn
