|2013 PPL Sanctity of Human Life Bulletin Insert|
Sunday, January 20, 2013, churches all over America will hold special services of remembering the 50 million lives destroyed by abortion in America since the legalizing of abortion by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision 40 years ago. The somber 40th anniversary is a time to mourn and remember innocent lives taken from the wombs of their mothers. It is a time to grieve, a time to pray, a time to repent on behalf of our nation's callous indifference to the treasure of human life.
King David understood God's heart toward human beings. In Psalm 8 he expresses God's mindfulness of human beings and His care for us. He speaks a question in a kind of awed wonder, "What is man that you are mindful of him?" The answer to that question is found as early as Genesis 9 when God prohibits the shedding of human blood and states His reason: "for God made man in his own image." To take a human life, especially an innocent child in the womb, is to reject God's image and by association the Creator God himself.
I hope that you will plan a special service on Sunday, January 20, 2013 or another date this month to remember the millions of babies aborted, to mourn their lives, to pray and repent, and to celebrate God's creation of your own life and the knowledge that He treasures you!
