Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you!
A twelve year old girl named Lia, entered a speech contest at school. She could have written on a plethora of topics, but she chose to write on her pro-life views, and abortion. She articulated her pro-life views so well that it impressed her teacher (pro-choice, and originally prompted her to change topics) and school, and she won her local school speech contest, leading her to the regional level. She did not win the regional speech contest, but she won so much more than that.
Her parent's recorded her speech and placed it on You Tube. Though she sparked a fire in some, in others she touched their hearts. Later, she found out that some women chose to give their babies life, rather than abort, due to her speech. Rather than win regional, and get a few extra pictures taken and a small trophy, she received the best trophy of all...lives saved!
Her video drew over 200,000 views, which in turn generated many comments. Some of those comments were extremely hateful, and some even threatened her. Subsequently, the comments had to be disabled due to the vicious threats.
Personally, I am so proud of her boldness to stand up and face the evil. I am sad these adults felt led to lash out in anger and hate. I know without JESUS, people will behave as such, but...she's twelve!
I am standing up with her! Abortion is murder! Psalm 139:14a says, I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Jeremiah 1:5a says, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.
GOD formed us and gave us life. Who has the right to take it away? NO ONE!! Exodus 20:13 says, Thou shalt not kill. GOD gave us life and HE wants us to live and to love one another. HE wants us to be patient, kind, loving and forgiving with each other, but what we have become is selfish, unkind, impatient and revengeful. We have become a people that does not believe in absolutes! Well, there is absolutely a GOD! There is absolutely an eternal punishment for those who choose to Lie, steal, KILL, worship other gods, turn away from the ONE AND ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD, commit adultery, (which includes all sexual sin) use GOD's name as a filth word to show disgust, not keep the Sabbath, and covet.
There is one more absolute that can not be overlooked...JESUS died on the cross for every person. What happened on the cross was a legal transaction. We broke GOD's perfect standard, (the Ten Commandments) and JESUS paid our fine in HIS life's blood, so we could be set free. When we turn away from our sin and trust in JESUS, the law will not longer have a hold on us, because JESUS stepped into the courtroom of forever and paid our fine, and the JUDGE will now let us go free. Free into eternal life! Wow!
If you have never trusted in JESUS, please do it today! The BIBLE says that today is the day of salvation! We never know when we will breathe our last breath. If you have had an abortion, and feel so empty and emotionally scarred, give it to the one who can take it all away. HE knows what has happened, and HE is ready to forgive you and give you a new life in HIM. TRUST in HIM!
Romans 10:9-10 says, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and shalt believe in thine heart that GOD hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I hope you will confess to HIM today! I am praying for you all!
