A little work out at the gym and back to the good ol’ Farmer’s Kitchen truck stop. This is pretty much the closest thing resembling a “coffee shop” near Cairo.
The other day I listened to a message by Kris Valatton (Bethel Church in Redding, CA) – “The Context of Justice”. It moved my heart. The message focuses on the injustice of abortion. I used to consider abortion a social issue within…now I see it as babies being robbed of their destiny on earth. An offense toward their creator God.
We have decided that these are not humans and therefore we do not value their life.
As believers we have neglected this as a personal offense toward God. I repent of not being a mouthpiece for LIFE. Truly there is more that we can do in the realm of speaking and educating others about LIFE. The starting place is always prayer. Bringing this to the Father – asking Him to change hearts.
Lord, send your Holy Spirit to convict us of truth.
“Open your mouth to defend the mute.”
We are to defend those who do not have a voice. I believe this includes the unborn population.
There are many scriptures that speak of Jesus’ great love for the children. He welcomes them into the Kingdom.
Kris spoke about Pharoh’s declaration of the killing of the firstborn male in the Old Testament…a redeemer was about to be born.
King Herod declared a killing of the firstborn male in the New Testament…a redeemer was about to be born.
Presently there has been a mass killing of children…God is raising up a generation of those will will speak and act in accordance with His redemptive plan.
-5 million babies have been aborted since 9/11 in our country.
-1.3 million children die each year in the US because of abortion.
Is the reversal of Roe V. Wade going to cure this social ill? Of course not. Numbers may decline, but there is a deeper root here. We need to pray that our eyes would be opened to the value of children.
Kris even mentioned Russia’s current situation in regards to the birth rate. In 1955 abortion became so common that the average woman had 10 abortions. Now this country women are desperate to conceived children. There is a serious problem.
Psalm 127 “Fruit of the womb is a reward from God…”
Psalm 17:14 “You fill their womb with treasure, they are satisfied with children.”
