Matthew 8:14,15 (Pt.3)Thought/Prayer:Jesus and the Pre-born Ill.Topics:2 at end.

“When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her. She got up and served him.  When evening came, they brought to him many possessed with demons. He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: “’He took our infirmities, and bore our diseases.’” WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Something just struck me in this scripture, and I hope my thinking is clear here.  “He took our infirmities, and bore our diseases.”  Our Lord, Jesus Christ, was not only able to do this . . . He wanted to do it.  When you take something from someone, it’s because you want it.  If you bear something for someone, it’s usually because you have decided to pick it up.  We know that Jesus was willing to do these things for His children who follow Him. 

But the way in which this is worded made me think of babies yet unborn who have diseases in the womb, often diseases that render these little babies unable to live outside the womb for very long.  Dealing with such a preborn is angst personified:  decisions must sometimes be made that are heart-wrenching.  Do we attempt a prenatal surgery to correct something, perhaps at great risk to the unborn child’s life?  Do we follow a doctor’s advice that the pregnancy be terminated because of predicted consequences of a disease in utero?

The thought that struck me is, “Does Jesus bear our diseases in the womb?”  It’s certainly a thought that would take much pondering to answer.  These are only thoughts here. 

But we do know that the Lord Jesus is everywhere, within and without; and He knows the ambience of the womb because He lived within that of His mother, Mary.  And He was the Word that created everything that exists (Col. 1:16; John 1:3).  So He must reside with babies in the womb, healthy or with physical problems.

It’s just something to think about.  Perhaps if this is so, it gives a different perspective to consider when making one of those life-wrenching decisions concerning a very ill baby in the womb.  Perhaps it could be helpful to think that the Creator of the baby, the Creator experienced with being born as a human, is there with not only parents struggling with what to do . . . but is also in there with a baby Who needs a little extra help.

A person would need to be very careful before ever mentioning something like this to parents in the midst of a situation like this.  But even if never said, it might be a blessing to just consider this possibility when praying for the unborn one and his or her family.                                   

Lord, help us to bring peace to such parents and families; and help us to do it in ways honoring to You.  If it is Your will, help us to consider that You are there, within . . . both the womb, the child’s pre-Earth home . . . and the child.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom to even ponder the thought of Christ’s presence in the womb of a needy baby; and then ask for wisdom if this thought should ever be shared with parents going through such an excruciatingly difficult time of decision.
