Thinking of Others – The Unborn

Our Focus Scripture -“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” Php 2:3  ESV.

In part six of this six part series, we shall look at our focus scripture as, “In humility, count the unborn more significant than yourselves.  It is important to understand that we are human, an independent person from conception, not from birth.   Isaiah said to the people of Israel, “Listen to me, O coastlands, and give attention, you peoples from afar. The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name.”  Is 49:1.  And later, “And now the LORD says, he who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him; and that Israel might be gathered to him— for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD, and my God has become my strength—”  Is 49:5.  Moreover, God told Jeremiah the following, “”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jer 1:5.  All of these point to the idea that God formed us in the womb.  He did not form some tissue which then became us.  Also, this alludes to the fact He creates us for a reason, forms us as we are to fulfill a specific purpose.  So, if this is the case, how can we assent to the murder of these “individuals” through abortion or infanticide?

Our focus verse above says we are to put others ahead of ourselves, see others as more significant than ourselves.  And since the unborn are people in the strictest sense, we must see them in this same light.  We as Christians must stand up in defense of these little ones who are subjected to one of the most hideous and barbaric practices we know.  What have they done to deserve death, and specifically this terrible type of death?  They are subject to being cut to pieces, having their heads crushed, and other techniques that ultimately end with their loss of life.  And during this process they suffer from incredible pain and agony.  Would we wish this upon a child or adult who has already are born?  How could we wish this upon those who have not yet been born?  We as Christians need to speak out.  We need to support those organizations who work to stop the practice of abortion and work to allow children to be born and live the life God has called them to live.  We must write to our government officials at all levels letting them know that they must stop this atrocious practice.  And we must maintain our calling as lights in the darkness as we fight for the rights of those who, according to the world, have no rights.

I would ask you to join me in working toward the abolishment of abortions and the shutting down of those organizations that work in this terrible industry.  In my opinion, Planned Parenthood must be closed down.  Women have other sources of medical care which do not include the killing of unborn children.  There are many great pro-life organizations out there and I encourage you to get involved with an organization and stand on the side of life. An organization called Equal Rights Institute works in educating people in how to argue for the unborn, which ultimately equips more and more people in the anti-abortion cause.  Their website is http://equalrightsinstitute.com/.  Also, there are many pregnancy centers throughout the country who work with future mothers to understand their choices and help them to choose life.  One here in the Kennesaw area is Cobb Pregnancy Resource Center, who I have supported for many years, and they have done a great job in educating and supporting women in educating them  of their choices and supports them when they decide to allow the child to be born.  Their website is http://www.cobbpregnancyresourcecenter.org/.

I encourage you to take a stand for life.  Find a good group or organization that opposes abortion and believes in the rights of the unborn and support them, whether it be financially, in prayer, through volunteering, telling others about what they do, or if possible, all of the above.  You will be doing a great service for the unborn and the cause of Christ.  And remember, look upon the unborn as more significant then yourself.  Trust me, you will be blessed beyond measure.
