Children represent a promise for the future. They promise a continuation of our story, and a security in our old age. Sometimes people spend years waiting on that fulfillment of their hopes. But when God has big plans for a child, he often reveals those plans through the special circumstances of their birth. In this series, we’ll look at several unique birth narratives, and what they each show us about God’s promises for us through specific children—and ultimately, God’s promise for us through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ.
