“and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also” (1 Corinthian 15:8).

While listing himself as the final one to whom the post-resurrection Christ appeared (v.5-7), Paul’s emphasis is that it matters not when you were born, what opportunities you might have missed out on but, rather, where you are now and what you are becoming in Christ Jesus. Time is in the hands of God, who did not even send forth his Son into the world until the fulness of time had come (Galatians 4:4). The joy of life and salvation is not dependent upon when you entered into Kingdom life, but that you are now in the Kingdom.
