Life’s Most Magic Moment?

Life is full of many magic moments — childhood memories, camp experiences, spiritual experiences, personal accomplishments, family gatherings, hard-won success, travel experiences, first crush, first date, first kiss, engagement, wedding, and so many more. However, one magic moment trumps them all, because, without this mysterious moment in time, none of your other magic moments would have been possible.

Of all life experiences, none can be more important that the one that gave you life. In an instant two cells united, beginning your journey on planet Earth. The moment of your conception is the most profound moment of your life, because without that moment — without the uniting of those two cells — you would never have existed.

You started small, in an instant, and ever since that first moment you have gradually grown and changed through millions of amazing and perfectly timed processes. Now you read and decide and love and win and lose. But it all goes back to your first moment — your most magic moment!

Conception, ours and that of our family and friends and that of every other person who began as two cells meeting, is something wonderful to celebrate.  It is the moment of glory — the amazing dawn of a human life.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
