Another Look at Roe v. Wade

I became a believer shortly before the historic Roe v. Wade decision that has since contributed to the death of over 59 million babies.  Who can fathom that number or the loss?

Psalms 139 invites us to celebrate the birth of every human being.  “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”  Praise God for the miracle of human life!

Recently a friend sent me an article written by  Frederica Mathewes-Green, author of Real Choices: Listening to Women; Looking for Alternatives to Abortion.  She takes a look at abortions from the woman’s point of view.  I encourage you to read this article.  It will remind us that abortion hurts not just the baby by the mother as well.

Thoughts on Christian Fellowship

Last night Marlys and I went for pizza with another couple.  With all four of us around the restaurant table we caught up on our children; where they are and how they are doing.  We talked about the latest news; the good news and bad news of life in this world.  But the most satisfying discussion was about the Lord.  We talked about our Lord Jesus Christ and what He is doing in our lives.

As we do after every fellowship occasion, Marlys and I debrief.  We remember what fun we had with our friends and what we learned about their lives and families.  We also review the spiritual discussions we enjoyed.  You might say we double-dipped: we experienced the moment and then we went home to talk about that moment of wonderful Christian fellowship.

‘Stir Up One Another to Love and Good Works’

I wonder if the writer of Hebrews had this in mind when he wrote, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”  (Hebrews 10:24, 25)

Final Thought On Christian Friendship

No man is an island.  That is especially true in the Christian life.  We weren’t born orphans when we entered the kingdom of God through faith alone in Christ alone.  God birthed us into the Christian household of faith (Galatians 6:10).  In order to grow and mature into The Faith we need the fellowship of believers.

Set a date.  Make a call.  Enjoy godly Christian fellowship in 2016.
