To Give Life Abundantly

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10

There is an analogy about the physical visible tangible opposition Christians face is not the enemy; The real enemy is he who animates the opposition. I believe the same analogy applies to the uprising against the life of unborn babies. Those who seek rights for abortion are not the true opposition, it is the ungodly forces behind this mindset. There is a thief in our world compelling multitudes killing and destroying is ok. Whether the origin of the child was consensual or nonconsensual, the thief intends to destroy people. He doesn’t care who or how old him or her is; he wants to kill. The thief’s mindset has convinced people that death is more preferable than life. Jesus has provided true life for everyone who accepts the message of the Gospel. As Christians, we have a duty to represent life. Supporting life and telling politicians, state representatives, and others in government to side with pro-life is good. Also, I think following the example of the early church, which adopted babies from gruesome deaths, should be our next response against abortion. My prayer is “a George Mueller mindset” will arise in USA. The nature of our Saviour is saving people; He is in the business of saving people. Jesus has said in Matthew 25: 35-36 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” (ESV). And in verse 40: “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” (ESV).
Grace and Peace,
