“But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it Again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it Again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy… The repetition in nature may not be a mere recurrence; it may be a theatrical encore.” ~G.K. Chesterton
“Whatever you do, find the God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated, passion of your life, and find your way to say it, live it, and die for it.” ~John Piper
“It is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you.” ~Tim Keller
“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.” ~William Wilberforce
In light of the third video that The Center For Medical Progress came out with today I feel like it is time to address the issue of the pro-life movement, because we have a lot of work still to do.
In each of these videos that has been released in the past couple of weeks I find myself aching for the mother and the baby. We live in a sick, sin filled world where women make unwise decisions, but that does not mean abortion has to be one of them.
Life is not something that we can ignore, it is precious, beautiful and unique, that is why it should not be placed in our hands to take. Job who had every reason to want to die instead said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21) Can we live out that attitude to a mother who wants an abortion? Will we choose to bless the Lord for this new life, by potentially raising her child, if there is no other option?
We cannot be pro-life when it is convenient. It is easy to change your FaceBook profile picture, send out a tweet – it is even easy to write a bunch of political rhetoric, but there is so much more at stake. May we respond wisely and with courage to the task that is set before us.
“You’re exhausted in the faith because you’re looking at you. The more you look at yourself and the less you look at God, the more you get frustrated at yourself.” ~Matt Chandler
“The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.” ~Elisabeth Elliot
“If you can trust God to save you for eternity, you can trust him to lead you for a lifetime.” ~David Platt
