“I Have Come That They May Have Life”: You Can Make A Difference

“I Have Come That They May Have Life”: You Can Make A Difference

Jesus said: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

John 10:10

Walk For Life

 

Jesus is passionate about our souls

There are many simple ways that we can make a huge difference in our world.  Simple ways we can affect change by BEING the Church, not just DOING Church, but it involves us GETTING involved in what is close to God’s heart.

We only have to read the context of the verse above to know how much God wants to love, nurture and care for us, and lead us in a close personal relationship with him. In John 10 in the Bible we see that Jesus is passionate about our souls.  If He is so passionate about our souls shouldn’t we be passionate about each other too?  Aren’t we called as the Body of Christ to reach out and love a broken and hurting world?

 

“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.”

-Psalm 139:13-16 

 

The Church can passionately care

There isn’t a lot more that is broken and hurting than lives affected by abortion.  That’s why the church is rising up to support choices for life, rising up to say “Enough is enough”,  and rising up to the challenge of being in ministry for life in communities all across America.  Through life-affirming local ministries the church can passionately care for women and men faced with unplanned and crisis pregnancies.

Meet The Need is blessed to have many such centers in our network around the country.  These centers need your support and encouragement – they NEED your involvement!  One way you can take action, and is a great way to get your whole family involved from the youngest to the oldest is to participate in a “Walk For Life”.  Many pregnancy crisis centers hold a walk annually to raise support and awareness in their communities.  This Spring our whole family joined many people from different churches in our home town on the “Walk For Life” for our local pregnancy center –  LifeCare of Brandon (Tampa, FL area).  What a blessing to support life publicly and in unity as the Body of Christ. Some other centers in our network are  Pregnancy Help4U and Real Choices Pregnancy Medical Clinic in the Dallas area, Crisis Pregnancy Center of Central Arkansas in Little Rock, AR and  Life Impact Network, also in the Tampa area.

Roll up your sleeves and get involved

There are many other opportunities to volunteer and donate items to these amazing ministries year-round, such as counseling, administration, volunteer nurses, “Baby Boutique” items, volunteering for special fund-raising events, mentoring young men and women, leading Bible studies, and so on.  Get to know your local center, roll up your sleeves and get involved – your efforts will literally be saving lives!

“…Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love,

but to use any violence to get what they want.

That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

– Mother Teresa
