Our experience of 2020 has left many of us shaken, experiencing a turbulence we haven't quite seen before. As Christians, we may be better equipped to handle times of instability, stress, and uncertainty. Jesus promised He will always be with us, He walks alongside us in our daily lives, and the Holy Spirit guides us through a deep understanding that no matter our circumstances God is in control.
Consider the woman who receives news of an unexpected pregnancy. She is shocked, fearful, uncertain and lacking confidence that she'll be able to handle the situation she's been given. What a woman experiences in an unplanned pregnancy is a microcosm of what we have experienced in 2020. Imagine being a young single woman, without a support system, perhaps having lost her job because of the pandemic, and now she's pregnant and she feels she has nowhere to turn and feels completely hopeless.
Our commitment to sharing the gospel with these very women comes from a deep understanding that without God and without the Saving Grace of Jesus, and the guiding wisdom of the Holy Spirit, it is unfathomable how we can handle any crisis without anxiety of the unknown.
Without Jesus, there is no hope. Only when given the opportunity to meet Jesus and understand that true life change comes from a relationship with him, can we endure the turbulence that is certain to come at the most unexpected times. When we minister to the women we meet, it's just as important that we lead her to Christ as it is that we help her make a choice for life for her baby. Only when she understands how important her life is can she truly understand how vital the life is within her.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
- 1 Peter 5:10
Help us preserve the sanctity of life by becoming a Loving Life Partner.
