Sanctity of Life Sunday is the day that churches think they can absolve themselves by addressing abortion ONCE while DOING less than NOTHING for the unborn the rest of the year. It’s like people who only show up at church for Easter and Christmas. It’s lame and very telling. You’re either in or OUT.
Some churches will say that they ‘go into all the world to preach the gospel’, and that GREAT!! Really, it is!!! They believe this is on the ground ministry, and it is a great start. But without any real ministries led by Christians who love to help others, it’s empty. And people really want to help others, with the Gospel in one hand and a tangible need in the other.
But churches stop there and conveniently forget the Book of Acts that took not just the Gospel but also real life, real time NEED TO THE PEOPLE: Food, shelter, medical, etc – the ACTS of the APOSTLES is exactly that!!! They ACTED!!!! They were boots on the ground men and women who did the dirty work, the real work, real ministry for the Lord. So, go ahead and preach on the unborn and abortion TODAY. Now….what about tomorrow??? Too many churches hide behind Mark 16:15 as their excuse.
ARISE & GO! If your church is doing no prolife work at all, then go to your Pastor and ask why. Then, ARISE & GO and start one! Because if you don’t, no one will. So, if you’re going to preach on it, GREAT!!! But now you have to back it up tomorrow. Moms and babies and families NEED YOU.
So I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.’ Acts 22:10
