Abortion: A Gospel Issue – The battle for life is undeniably a Gospel issue, and everyone in God’s church should be concerned with the Gospel. At the very core of pro-life ministry are two facts, the church has the Gospel, and those involved in abortion need the Gospel. What we must do is show up and give it to them, and when the church chooses to ignore the gospel opportunities that arise at killing centers, it misses one of the largest and whitest fields that America has to harvest. The cross Jesus carried to Calvary was the ultimate reason He came. His cross had to be carried as a result of an assault by the enemy on innocent, free people God created in His image. Free man of course chose poorly, and lost his innocence, and he died spiritually and eventually physically. Abortion is not much different, an assault by the serpent on the seed of the woman. His tactics haven’t changed, robbing the innocent of life and destroying the soul of the one who chooses death. Unlike Adam, this baby has no earthly voice for choice, but it has a divine one, blood that cries out to a just God. Precious preborn babies need Gospel representatives on earth to speak on their behalf, and we speak when we imitate Christ by picking up the cross of burden and responsibility and die to ourselves on it repeatedly for the Glory of God, the advancement of the Gospel, and the saving of innocent life. This is the mission of sidewalk counselors, prayer warriors and ministers of Jesus at abortion clinics. Do you have eyes to see that abortion is a gospel issue that the church cannot afford to ignore any longer? Though there are many strategies in winning this battle long term, none is more vital than the presence of the Church of God at the place where the battle for souls and lives physically manifests.
