This weekend­—Sanctity of Human Life Sunday—I am providing a short update to a group at my church on some of the “Wins and Challenges” that we face in the spiritual conflict over the lives of God’s children, created in His image.

This remembrance centers on the value of the life of every person — unborn, infant, toddler, child, teenager, adult, senior — no matter their age, race, culture, gender, abilities or disabilities, capacity to produce, or physical condition.

Sunday’s handout will have some links, quotes, and images from Focus on the Family, Care Net, and EvanTell and our Save the Mother, Save her Child ministry for over 700 life-affirming pregnancy centers. You can access the handout, which covers a few of the topics, at the end of my post. 

In my presentation, I have two objectives:

  1. Reinforce the truth that the spiritual battle for the lives of God’s children is a battle we can engage in every day on our knees. Prayer, Scripture, and the gospel are powerful weapons in this battle.  
  2. Inspire folks to get involved in support of the lives of God’s children in their town. There are so many ways to serve that every Christ-follower, equipped with the gifts God gave him or her can be engaged somewhere! The people of the God of the Bible stand for good and life!  We care about protecting the unborn child of God because He loves them and us.

I pray many will join us, get involved, and encourage their family and friends in the fight for God’s image bearers at every age and stage of life. Love and serve God among His creation. Pray. Work. Love. Prop up the good!

NOTE:  You can go to this link at Focus on the Family’s “Be a Voice” and get inspiration, free resources, to fight for the lives of the unborn, and register for the Evangelicals for Life Conference.  It’s in Washington, but you can live stream some or all of it at home, in your pregnancy center, church, women’s or men’s group, for your office.
