Sanctity of Life!

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Prov. 31:8

      This Sunday is Sanctity of Human Life Day. Churches around the United States annually recognize the third Sunday in January as a day to proclaim, and be reminded, that human beings are created in the image of God and that all human life is sacred. It is a day to commit ourselves to valuing and upholding the sanctity of human life at every stage and age. As Christians, we play an important role in valuing and saving lives. 
      The church can be a place of safety and refuge to help women be brave and choose life. We can also support pregnancy resource centers (like Care Net Pregnancy Services of Northern Ky) as they seek to come alongside those who might be considering an abortion. We will be distributing baby bottles this Sunday and asking you to fill the bottles with change to support our local Care Net.
      Did you know that your heart began beating when you were but 3 weeks and 1 day old? Before you were even born, your heart had beat approximately 54 million times. Isn’t life amazing? Shouldn’t we do all we can to support and value all human life? 
      I’m glad that Kentucky is leading the way in trying to protect the lives of the unborn. Let me share a little about two of the bills that have already been passed in the Kentucky legislature this year. Senate Bill 9 (Born Alive Act) states that medically appropriate and reasonable life-saving and life-sustaining medical care and treatment must not be denied to any born-alive infant. It may seem strange to even have to pass a law to protect a child once he/she is born, but as a nation, we have failed to protect the unborn during pregnancy and sometimes even after the child is born (if they survived an abortion).   
      House Bill 2 (Protecting Life) grants the Attorney General the authority to seek injunctive relief and civil or criminal penalties to prevent violations regarding abortions or administrative regulations. By giving the Attorney General more authority, we are one step closer to ensuring there are people in place to protect unborn children’s rights. 
      I currently have the privilege of serving as the Chairman of the Committee on Public Affairs for the Kentucky Baptist Convention (prayers appreciated). Wouldn’t it be honoring to God if Kentucky became the first state with an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution that states that no provision for the right to an abortion exists in Kentucky. (Given the make-up of the new Kentucky legislature, I think there is at least a possibility for such an amendment.) Let us pray that God would move in the lives of both Democrats and Republicans to defend the lives of the unborn.
      Yes, the church is to represent Jesus wherever we are and we have an opportunity to play a powerful role in saving lives. We cannot grow weary in being a voice for the unborn. We must continue to pray and support pro-life causes. I think supporting the sanctity of human life includes praying for and supporting the lives of the oldest and most vulnerable. We want them to be protected from abuse and we want the to be protected as much as possible from Covid-19. We want them to be a priority in receiving Covid-19 vaccines as they are most vulnerable to the deadly threats associated with this virus. 
     Finally, let us be concerned about the eternal destiny of all human lives. We want to love people enough to share the good news of the gospel with them so that they might be saved and enjoy the presence of Christ for all eternity. There is no greater way to love a person than to share with them the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Let’s go church!                        
Bro. Harold
