Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: January 27, 2016

The mother pays the price of birth.  She doesn’t enlist the child’s assistance or solicit his or her advice.  Why would she?  The baby can’t even take a breath without umbilical help, much less navigate a path into new life.  Nor, Jesus is saying, can we.  Spiritual re-birthing requires a capable parent, not an able infant.
