Jesus says in John 10:10, “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” We have been thinking about this verse a lot at Align over the past few years and in recent weeks! We’ve been sharing it with people outside of Align – – telling them that Jesus came to earth as a human being so that they might have LIFE in Him.
In God’s providence, on June 24, 2022, at 10:10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, the time zone in which the Federal branches of our nation’s government operate – – the Supreme Court announced the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.
We find that to be way more than a coincidence. Jesus’ heart for people and life – the physical life of preborn children and the spiritual life of young moms and dads and of people who have experienced abortion – is FRONT and CENTER in that decision.
It’s so important to remember that abortion is not primarily a political issue. It is a spiritual issue. And the remedy for it is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Friends, there is a tremendous opportunity at this point in our nation’s history for us to show people the LARGER love, the ABUNDANT generosity, the PURE truth of Jesus Christ. Point them to His Word! Start with John 10:10 if you want to. 😊 We have ALL been created for Jesus.
