Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I attended a meeting on Saturday at my church called Head of the Household. It's a monthly meeting to train men to be leaders at home and in the Christian community at large. This week's topic dealt with truth. During the meeting, my pastor asked a question about Headlines of the Past week dealing with truth, I honestly couldn't think of one. For me, the big HEADLINE has been: Caleb Joochan Okulski has been born! He's been around for 9 months, but my wife and I hadn't seen him yet. His arrival via C-section this past week has been my main headline, one that has flooded out any news stories.

But, during his discussion of the question, I had a few thoughts. Basically, there's
a certain truth that ran through my Scripture reading the night before the surgery
and at the hospital before we went to the operating room. I read both times out
of Psalm 139: "For you created me in my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb...your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

While I know from my educational training that on one level the production of a child comes from the union of a sperm and an egg, that is not the whole truth and nothing but the truth. If I believe Scripture (and I do), then I know that God created Caleb in a very intimate fashion, knitting him together in Laura's womb.
Even were Caleb a 'mistake' on our part (he wasn't), he still is not a mistake on God's part. For that, I can rejoice, because he is fearfully and wonderfully made.

The biological explanation of the birth may apply, but it is neither the complete
truth, nor the most important part of the truth. God gave us Caleb, as he did our blessed daughter 3 years ago; He created both of them specifically and for that we gave Caleb the middle name Joochan, which means 'praise the Lord' in Korean. We do, indeed, praise Him. May all glory and honor go to the One who is worthy of love.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
