§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Exodus 19:1-4 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer: Earth is His, and So Are We.  Topics:  2 at end.

“In the third month of the departure of Israel out of the land of Egypt, on this day they came into the wilderness of Sinai:  For departing out of Raphidim, and coming to the desert of Sinai, they camped in the same place, and there Israel pitched their tents over against the mountain.  And Moses went up to God: and the Lord called unto him from the mountain, and said: Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:  You have seen what I have done to the Egyptians, how I have carried you upon the wings of eagles, and have taken you to myself.  If therefore you will hear my voice, and keep my covenant, you shall be my peculiar possession above all people: for all the earth is mine.”  Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)  http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When digging around in this scripture for meaning, there is a study in opposites.  It’s not the first one in this passage.  We know that God’s mighty arm brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt.  This is huge and great.  We also know that he took them to Himself, tenderly, to protect them.  This is smaller, more tender.  But now, look at another contrast.  He mentions to them that he has brought them to Himself, and in the same sentence, he says that He owns them as His special people, and then, “for all the earth is mine.”

They were His.  The world is His.  There is contrast.  He seems to go from close/personal on to the outreach of his arm over the entire Earth.  He speaks of drawing them close and that they are His above all others.  They can be His, in part, because the entire entity of the Planet Earth is His to own.  Personal, intimate God:  God who orchestrates the big picture.

It is the same for us.  He desires very greatly to draw us close.  When He is rescuing us from our trespasses, this drawing-close can mean something most special.  We as the failures that we often are in His sight, know how this feels on our end of things:  Most wonderful, to be taken back and held close.  And to be included in the same thought as the entire Earth being His – well, we just want to praise Him and say, “Thank You, Lord.”  We want this huge inclusion!

Lord, we can’t really understand all about this, and because that is a sign of your greatness, we really don’t ask to understand it here on this Earth.  Some day in Heaven, we’ll understand.  But for now, dear Lord, we just praise You that you think so much of us to claim us as Yours, as part of everything you own – which is everything.  We are so privileged, Lord, to know you in this way and to be thought of at all.  Please let women who are making choices about pregnancy know that you feel this way about us and want to include them in Your plans for Planet Earth and Your ownership of it.

Topics:  Pray for God to reveal through pro-life efforts how much He loves this world and wants to pull all of us into His endless love.
