what i am learning..

As I've been caring for grandma, fielding questions regarding pregnancy and doing the work of abolitionism I've come to see how often we determine, define, think in terms of “quality of life”.

I fail to see “quality of life” in scripture. I submit that this is of the world and it's denial of Christ ways.

I challenge you to watch how in any given day you define “quality of life” for yourself or others [grandma pooping herself, down syndrome, paralysis. being unmarried. babe in womb must be “healthy” etc] .. how you see someone in a particular condition and think that sucks/I'd hate that/that's no way to live.. or you yourself feel you could never live like/with ______.

[think about what we are saying when we do this. that the One who created them fell short/made a mistake etc -critiquing Him! scolding Him! demeaning Him. Scorning Him.]

Can we still serve Christ with ______? If He is sustaining our life here on earth, then we have our answer.

Let us have His mind and submit to His Word and what He has to say about life [John 10:10, John14:6, Matt 6:25-34]. That our worth is found solely in Him as it is HIS image we bear. Circumstances or experiences do not change this.

We are so quick to call our preferences “health” and our fears a sin/negative..
Who or what determines health and is that to be our focus?

“... stop thinking people "should" be a certain way and we start noticing that they are exactly and perfectly how they were meant to be, in that moment of time. People aren't created to be as I think they should be, rather they are created as the Lord ordained and the less I think about how others should be, the more I can think about what I need to better in myself.”

:Immanuel- God with us:

Christ Incarnate [Matthew 1, Luke 1]
Prophecy fulfilled
Isaiah 7:14—Isaiah prophesies that a pure young woman will give birth to God's son. Matthew 1:18–23—Isaiah's prophecy is fulfilled. Isaiah 9:6—Isaiah prophesies that Jesus Christ will come as a baby; Jesus is described by several names. Micah 5:2—Micah prophesies that Jesus will be born in Bethlehem.
... to name a few!

Christ was born
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:l0-ll
Do we forget the infanticide and genocide that occurs following Christs birth?! [Matthew 2]
Abortion is an attack of the enemy on the incarnation of the Christ Child.
Satan's been trying to usurp & kill Jesus ... and His image bearers To wipe out Israel [His image bearers] off the face of the earth [Rev 12]. This is nothing new under the sun [Ecc 1:9]. Satan has been a liar and a murderer from the beginning [John 8:44], and he has used anyone who is willing to follow him to carry out his plans; King Herod, Haman, Babylon, Hitler, Margaret Sanger... Who else?
Abortion can be ignored. GREIVIOUS. Let us not miss this, that at its core is an enemy that has come to 'steal kill and destroy' [John 10] and that Satan wants us to 'curse God and die' [ Job 2].

Immanuel -Christ with us [Matthew 1, Isaiah 7 & 8, John 1]
Do you believe it? that the Christ child came through the womb? was born. birthed. human the entire time?

Need to see abortion [the murder of the preborn child in the womb] as nothing less than Satan's attack on the very image of God.
Do not think for a second that abortion is anything other than our enemy Satan's attempt to discredit God & His immaculate conception. Dehumanizing what our Lord alone creates, forms and sustains in the womb. That you would not dismiss this. The world hates babies because they are God's image-bearers and they [ultimately] hate God.

War against SIN
This is not a political, choice, opinion, social, or women's issue. It is a sin issue [against a Holy God] and as such, the only response is the Word Himself.
Are you agonizing over one of the Kings own image bears being destroyed by another image bearer?
Satan's wrath is great as he realizes that his time is short [Rev 12:12].
How many will he take with him un-protested by the professing Church...

ADMONISHMENT: let us not be deceived, or belittle abortion and conception any longer [1 Cor 3:18-23, Col 2:8];
So how do YOU need to WAKE UP [Eph 5, 1 Peter 5:8] to this?
-Consider how you perpetuate either Satan's work (dehumanizing, devaluing conception) or God's work [welcoming conception? stop futilely attempting to control what you can not via “birth control”.
why do you distrust Him so?!]
-Ask your physicians if they too provide the murderous 'procedure' of 'abortion'
[if they do then confront, flee and expose! Eph 5:11]
-Apathetic, ignoring this in your own town?
Trust God. Repent. Fear God.
after examining yourself first, go then and warn others!

Jesus Christ became an embryo in the womb of Mary, to be born, so that He may die on a cross to save sinners and abolish death. His earthly existence began in the very place our culture destroys those made in God's Image. This is a foundational truth in the fight against abortion.
As you shop and rush about, are you putting forth the same effort and time into sharing thee gift of Christ Himself? We give because He gave. We are His image bearers. From here forth, allow each gift given AND received to remind you of and point you to, the gift of salvation.
