The Privilege of Life

The Privilege of Life

It has been a little quiet on the blogging front for me over the past two weeks or so, but for good reason.  Two weeks ago, my dear wife gave birth to our fourth child.  Little Ashlee Faith has been a little blessing and we are so happy to have her as part of our family.  The Lord was very gracious and gave a safe delivery.

You know, the birth of a child brings a lot of emotions and very little sleep.  I held back the tears as Ashlee was born as a reflected on the miracle of life.  But even more, as my wife was laboring, news came in over the television in the room of the Gosnell trial verdict and the continued tragic news of this man’s abortion work.  It was a bit surreal as I sat in that labor room as my wife prepared to deliver our baby all the while thinking of the fact that this man had been killing babies not much younger than the little life that was about to join our family.

These are just one of the affects of sin.  If there is one thing that I want to say from this short post, it is that life is precious.  We as believers and churches need to do all we can to sound the alarm about the truth that life is precious and we must allow the sinfulness of sin to motivate us in the work of the gospel.  It is only by the power of the gospel that hearts can ever be transformed and it is only through the gospel that heinous acts like partial-birth abortion will ever be stopped.

May God continue to be merciful to the United State of America and may churches do their job in reaching the USA with faithful and solid gospel work!
