I'm Pregnant!

The little boy had the task of making a sentence and gave the teacher this one, "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher said, you must not understand what that word means. Do you know what pregnant means? Sure, the little boy replied, It means carrying a child!

I am not the only one pregnant, the apostle Paul was too...

Could we not also describe one who is pregnant as expecting, as in "I am expecting." or one who is full of life and about to give birth? One who longs to give life to another.

That is what I mean when I say I am pregnant.  I am expecting and I am full of life inside of my spirit and soul.

And where does that life come from? From an intimate relationship with God.  He is the one that puts that life within us!

So then we like Paul can say "I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you."  If you are a Christian, you ought to be pregnant too, and today is the delivery day.
