As I stood on the sidewalk today I watched a woman going in and out of the clinic with a card and several trays of cupcakes. Apparently, it was one of the worker’s birthday’s today. I thought to myself what an awful place to celebrate a birthday. A place where innocent children are killed and never given the chance to celebrate even one birthday. How cold hearted are these people who cannot recognize the horrific injustice being done to innocent children? Why are they blind to the innocent blood that is shed right before them? And then I thought about Jesus. Our dear Lord and savior, full of love for the world, who shed his own blood that we may be saved. Unjustly convicted and sentenced to death just as the innocent babies that die everyday. How many times does the blood of the innocent have to be shed before the world will see the truth? When will all sinners come to the feet of our Lord and ask for forgiveness?
As God’s children we are sent on his behalf to pray for the innocent. We are defenders of his most precious blessing. At conception a baby becomes a part of the world. A new soul sent here to bless the world with innocence. A baby is a symbol of God’s love. Babies give unconditional love, the same as our God in heaven. A baby’s sweet face can melt the heart of even the coldest of hearts. That is God’s intention. He knew exactly what he was doing when he made the eyes of a baby so beautiful and the touch of their hand so soft. It is no coincidence that a mother becomes overwhelmed with joy when she sees her baby for the first time. She has just witnessed the greatest miracle there is. LIFE!
In Psalms 139:13-14, David said to God, “You formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works.” David knew of the great miracle that God had bestowed upon him. He had given him life and for that he was grateful to his creator. Let us be like David. Let us be thankful to God for our own lives and for all the beautiful children that have blessed us. And as we go to church on Sunday to honor our savior who was risen from the dead, let us Celebrate Life! Let us present ourselves with contrite hearts, as his faithful children. And, let us honor the innocent souls in heaven whose lives were sacrificed before they were born. We graciously ask that these precious angels pray to our Lord in heaven for an end to abortion. May God answer their prayers and the prayers of all who dedicate their lives to saving the innocent.
Wishing you many blessings and a very Happy Easter!
