Psalm 126:5–6 (NKJV)
5 Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6 He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
The Precious Seed
A passionate, intimate investment of life can result in more than a nuisance or an interruption of one’s lifestyle.
The World sees sex and resultant pregnancy as a possibility, but not something to be concerned about. If it happens, there are options. However, God sees the investment of one’s life into an act of intimacy as something to be taken seriously, and only to be entered into in the sacred context of marriage.
The Joyful Result
Bringing in the Sheaves
The Proper Attitude
The Blessed Result
An addition, not an accident
Abortion may be convenient, but not holy
The Precious Seed
In a broader sense, God sees the Christian as a sower of seed.
We should spread the gospel with passion and care, weeping over the lost and pouring the gospel out to all who will hear and believe.
The Precious Sheaf
Whether it be a precious new baby brought into a life—ready or not—or whether it is a new soul brought into the kingdom, it is important to bring new life into all our lives.
The only way to be sure that the new life arrives and is secure is if we are totally committed to the process.
The Questions of the Day
Are We—as a church—committed to the process of standing up for new life every day?
Are We—as individuals—willing to be responsible, not only for our actions, but for the welfare of others, even the unborn (physically and spiritually)?
We have an opportunity to make a difference in our world in the arena of abortion, but also in the arena of salvation.
What Will We Do?
Today, We Pray
For forgiveness for our nation’s sin of abortion
For healing of our nation and the victims of abortion
For salvation for those who are in sin and bondage
For direction for our lives and ministries
