We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
1 John 3:16-24 NASB1995
For many years, abortion has been the center of much discussion in our country.
While we rejoice at the overall number of abortions dropping year over year, we still recognize the awful tragedy that, on average, the lives of approximately 98 precious babies are ended every hour!
2021 continued to be a particularly difficult year in many ways. And the abortion industry nationwide has stepped up its efforts of promoting a culture of death by offering abortion as the “smart answer” to an unplanned pregnancy during an uncertain time.
One of the best ways to stand against this evil is to come together and openly state “We support and defend the Sanctity of Human Life.”
You can also support a local pregnancy center that offers loving care before, during and after pregnancy. One example in Northwest Arkansas is the Loving Choices Pregnancy Center.
In 1984, President Ronal Reagan issued a presidential proclamation designating the third Sunday of January as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
Organizations and individuals across the country are continuing that tradition by setting this day aside – January 23, 2022 – as a day to pray for the end of the tragedy of abortion, ask for God’s mercy on our country for this heinous sin, and proclaim loudly that all lives are created in the image of God and should be treated as such.
Please join me on Sunday, January 23, and declare the sanctity of all human lives and stand together to protect the lives of every unborn baby.
Satan uses abortion today the same way he used infanticide in ancient history. Pharoah killed all the male babies of the Israelites in Egypt to keep the Israelite population under control and in subjection. Herod killed all the male babies in Bethlehem under the age of two to assassinate Jesus, the prophesied Messiah.
Supporters of abortion today are blinded to Satan’s scheme. They see abortion as freedom. The ability to not take responsibility. They use extreme cases of “what if” to justify unmitigated access to abortion on demand.
The truth is abortion is the killing of a human being. It is the termination of life.
And while terminating a pregnancy to save the life of a mother is a necessity in some cases, the ability to abort babies on command should not be allowed.
God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” God, furthermore, said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.
Exodus 3:14-15 NASB1995
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, And there is no savior besides Me. It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed, And there was no strange god among you; So you are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And I am God. Even from eternity I am He, And there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?”
Isaiah 43:10-13 NASB1995
19 So that your trust may be in the Lord, I have taught you today, even you. 20 Have I not written to you excellent things Of counsels and knowledge, 21 To make you know the certainty of the words of truth That you may correctly answer him who sent you? Proverbs 22:19-21 NASB1995
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”
John 8:58 NASB1995
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 NASB1995
You Tell Them I Am Sent You.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 1:1, 3-5 NASB1995
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11 NASB1995
