January 22 is the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Decision

It is also National Sanctity of Human Life Day and is recognized on the Sunday closest to the 22nd. (Read more about Sanctity of Human Life day.)

On January 22, please pause and watch one or more of these short videos.  They speak of the sanctity of life, and the need to protect babies in the womb.  They remind us that…

Pro-Life Matters Because Pre-Borns Matter

Pre-born children are real people.  As Christians, we should be diligent to speak out against abortion and to take a stand in every possible way against the murder of unborn children in the womb.

As Christians, we know that every person is born according to God’s good will. God has a plan for the life of every baby.  To take the life of a pre-born child is to defy God.  Take a minute and watch this short video and reflect on God’s purpose and plan.

During this next week as we enter into another year of legal abortion in our country, pray that God would raise up people to protect the rights of the pre-born.  No child’s life should be cut short by the hands of man.  

The Glorious Mercy and Grace of Our God

For anyone reading this who has had an abortion, never forget that, if you belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, God has forgiven that sin.  Your baby is in Heaven in the safe arms or our loving God (Read  Do Babies Go to Heaven if They Die? The Mentally Impaired, Young Children, the Unborn?).  One day see your child.  Just as God has a purpose and plan in eternity for every person born into His family, He also has a purpose and plan in eternity for your pre-born child. Give thanks to the Lord for His mercy and grace and live in expectation of that which will one day be reality–a glorious reunion with a baby you will meet in the heavenly realm

Christmas: A Reminder of the Sanctity of Life

Only a few short weeks ago we celebrated the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:4), who was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary (Matthew 1:18).  While we celebrate His first coming by remembering His birth, it was actually at the time of conception that He left Heaven and came in human form (John 1:14, Philippians 2:7) to dwell with us (Matthew 1:23).  

It’s interesting to ponder that if Jesus was born in September, which many believe He was (read Was Jesus born in September?), then late December would be the time of His conception, and a great reminder of the sanctity of the life of a pre-born child. 

Human Rights

Abortion is also a human rights issue.  January brings us back to the reality of the sin of our world.  We live in a society in which a pre-born baby has no rights. Roe v. Wade is a law that never should have passed.  But the legalization of abortion was passed and the number of abortions increases with each passing year.

Take a minute and reflect on the sanctity of life.  Watch this short video and then pray for the life of every pre-born child.  Pray that every baby in the womb will be born and reach their full potential in the purpose and plan God has for their life.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (Psa 127:3)

Do not be anxious about anything.  (Phil 4:6)

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must rightly remember who is in control.  Our God is sovereign over all things, including COVID-19.  As Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) said, “The sovereignty of God is a soft pillow on which weary people lay their heads.” 

Remember also God’s gracious promise, and that it is true and He is faithful to keep it:  Hebrews 13:5 …”I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”  The next verse remind us of the power that comes in trusting God and how we can live:  Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man [or COVID-19] shall do to me.

God loves us, and in Christ we find confidence and calm in times of uncertainty and trouble.  When we trust in God, fear is replaced with faith, stress is replaced with strength, anxiety is gone and hope abounds, problems become opportunities, and we are able to receive the blessings God has for us in the midst of difficult circumstances. Turn to Jesus. He will lead you to the still waters and give rest for your troubled soul.  

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…Hebrews 6:19

****************************

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
