Why does the Bible compare salvation to birth? Jesus referred to salvation as being “born again” when He was teaching Nicodemus. The Lord helps us understand spiritual rebirth by comparing it to physical birth. Conception, pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and the newborn all have parallels in the spiritual transformation of being born again. This unique Christian devotional explores the truths of this beautiful analogy in 40 devotions. This devotional is a blessing not only to expecting parents but also to others who want a deeper scriptural understanding of the New Birth. Each devotion has a thought of the day to give you inspirations for prayer, spiritual growth, and practical information for childbirth preparation from a Certified Nurse-Midwife. Full-color illustrations make this devotional a lovely keepsake.
