All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
The birth of a baby brings about marvelous experiences and relationships. But it is an adjustment for mothers, for fathers, for brothers and sisters; and being born is a tremendous shock to the baby. Your Baby Is For Loving will help all family members prepare for the new arrival.
MaryJane Pierce Norton invites us to consider parenting as a partnership. We partner with our spouses, other family members, our faith community, and most importantly, with God, as we raise our children as people of faith. Your Baby Is For Loving not only helps families prepare for the birth but also offers practical suggestions and spiritual guidance for the days, weeks, and months that follow.
