Should saving children and their mothers from abortion be a

PRIORITY

for every local church that is serious about the Gospel?

While attending a church function, Terri Palmquist unexpectedly encounters a baby saved from abortion

While attending a church function, Terri Palmquist unexpectedly encounters a baby God used her to save from abortion

Most churches support mission outreaches to homeless people, young people, and people in faraway countries, so their plates are too full to support mission outreaches to people in the womb (and to their mothers) in their own community.

But what other outreach provides the opportunity to minister to Jesus, confront the devils agenda, work out our faith, focus on life- and-death issues, and have an unforgettable impact on peoples lives, while doubling the impact of our efforts?

Jesus said that when we
minister
to Jesus
minister to the least of these we are actually ministering to Him
(Matthew 25:40,45). Who is more disposable, less significant to our selfish culture than the unborn child? The good shepherd focuses on the life of the one vulnerable sheep whose life hangs in the balance, even if he must temporarily turn away from the needs of the 99 sheep in the fold to do so (Matthew 18:12).

When we minister to one pregnant woman, we have the opportunity to
double
the impact
permanently impact the lives of at least two people. The childs physical life and the womans spiritual life and health both hang in the balance, and any delay in providing help may cause permanent, irreversible pain to both mother and child.

focus on
life-and-death
issues

Abortion is a life-and-death issue, not just a "sin" issue. (Sometimes the baby isnt the only one who dies.) Churches should consider life-and-death needs to be a higher priority than transient needs. But more than just saving the flesh, God also often uses pro-life ministries to save souls from Hell.

The day that a woman chooses abortion is a key milestone of her life, for better or for worse. She will never forget it. Even
unforgettable
impact
if she refuses our help and aborts her baby, we have the opportunity to turn this crisis into an everlasting memory of Christs love, or into a memory of the Churchs apathy. A woman who aborts her child may be particularly bitter toward pro-life Christians, looking at them as hypocrites because they were not there to try to stop her even though they claim to oppose abortion.

confront the
devils agenda

Satan has always had schemes to try to steal away the heavenly seeds God has planted. Abortion is the modern embodiment of this satanic agenda which has blinded the eyes of Gods people throughout the ages. If we are serious about spiritual warfare, we must respond to these attacks.

work out
our faith

Most churches say they oppose abortion. Faith without works is dead (James 2:26). Anti-abortion rhetoric without anti- abortion ministry is dead.

Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.
- James 4:17

Being a faithful Christian soldier in todays society must include defense of the unborn


If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.

- Martin Luther

The way we respond to the needs of the weakest and most vulnerable members of our community is a measure of our character.


But we cant stop abortion until we change peoples hearts!

True, but God can use us to help change peoples hearts, one at a time, as we proclaim the Gospel of Life. This is not about politics, it is about people!

To learn how churches can benefit by expanding their ministries to women and children at risk of being killed by abortion, and to learn more about why this spiritual battle should be a priority for the Church, read Tim Palmquists book Gods Plan: Transforming the Gates of Hell into the Gates of Heaven. This book offers specific, positive strategies to save babies and minister to women.
