Reproduction

I am sitting in the ultrasound clinic.  My daughter is about to find out the gender of the child she is carrying.  It is a fairly exciting time.  It is something that happens several times a day in this office and in offices like it all over.  There are about six women in here today involved in the process.  By the way all of them, in fact everyone in here, is texting, weird.
We are eager to find out about our physical babies, how about the spiritual ones?
It is the normal thing for us to have children, we get excited about it, at some level, our lives revolve around it.  We choose where we live, how we live, and how we set up our houses based on having children.  For at least 18 years, really about 26, and really for the rest of our lives we are parents.

John 15:16 tells us that Christ chose us to bear fruit that remains.  In John 17:20 Christ prays for those who will believe in Him through the word of the disciples.  In Matthew 28:18 - 20, the command we have from Christ is to make disciples.  The expectation seems to be that as in our physical lives it is normal to reproduce, so it is in our spiritual lives.  There is an industry built on our desire to do that which causes physical reproduction.  That does not seem to be the case spiritually.  Wonder why that is?
