Beloved, last week we looked at some of the misconceptions about a baby during the first month of the first trimester. This week we’re going to look at something truly miraculous that happens throughout the second month of the first trimester.
I’m going to add a short video at the bottom that really sums up everything I’m detailing here while showing you the baby itself growing. It’s done through a secular perspective so you’ll hear words like embryo and fetus. Other then that, it’s a great little clip about what’s happening during this month.
What is this miracle of life? Organs! Even in the video, you’ll hear the doctor say that the cells were ‘suddenly signaled’ to form the heart, lungs, ears, hands, and feet. How is this possible? The information for all these pieces to the baby puzzle are already found in the DNA. Without getting super technical, there are tiny machines within cells that read that DNA and pass on the needed information. If you’ve never seen the video of a motor protein at work then you’ve never lived, dear ones!
Everything you see in that extremely short clip is inside a cell. These are some of the ways a beautiful miracle can form in a mother’s womb. Although scientists are unsure what sparks the process for organs to begin, they do know for certain all the information needed is already there. As the doctor says in the video at the bottom, it’s precise, or as he puts it like an ‘orchestra’.
Brethren, I know what sparks the organs growing and it truly is a miracle. The God who upholds the universe, who maintains the vast distance of planets and stars simultaneously maintains the vast distance of protons, neutrons, and nuclei. God, the sovereign King of kings and Lord of lords, is involved in every moment of forming this baby into His image. If we can trust Him to uphold all these things, we can trust His Word to be accurate.
Beloved friends, I pray for you all that the glory and majesty of our God would become all the more evident to you throughout this series. I speak a lot about Gods justice, and He is a just God. That is for the losts sake, that they would repent and be saved from the wrath to come. This series is my opportunity to speak on the other attributes of God so that His people will rejoice! Rejoice! As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
