§ 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.

Hebrews 4:15   Thought/Prayer:  God’s Word as Strength.            02-08-2012

“For we have not a High Priest who is unable to feel for us in our weaknesses, but one who was tempted in every respect just as we are tempted, and yet did not sin.”  Weymouth’s New Testament http://bible.cc/.htm  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When struggling with temptation in our lives, sometimes we just don’t know exactly how God would have us deal with it – not to say we shouldn’t:  We should!  But sometimes situations lend themselves to a temptation element but are not easy to go against because of extenuating circumstances.  Someone’s reputation might be compromised; someone’s friends or relatives may appear to look bad.  Sometimes we really don’t know what to do.

I knew someone one time who was caught in a web of not only temptation, but sin.  How did this person get out of this web?  By using God’s Word, the scriptures.  This person made God’s Word her mantra during the difficult time.  Although it is unknown as to how she used the Word, she perhaps memorized it, reviewed it constantly, stuck to it, put herself under its authority in her mind and actions.  Perhaps the constancy of it is what she found most useful.

But she had to choose to do these things.  When dealing with our oh-so-human ability to get caught up in undesirable actions or thoughts (although seemingly so desirable), we have to choose “right.”  The right.  If we don’t make conscious choices about it, right-ness will stay just out of reach, like a gold ring on a silver wand, attached to our foreheads. 

Even in our pro-life service, we may need to choose the best, the positive, over what seems perhaps more interesting or more enjoyable.  Not that this is sin, or even temptation in the strictest sense of the word; but there may be a type of temptation to do less than God’s will and more of what we feel is more appealing.

Lord, let us not get into a habit of ignoring Your best.  You Yourself, Lord, dealt with temptation – but not sin!  Help us to know how to deal with the sin and temptations in our lives.  Help us be true to Your Word and to claim it for ourselves over and over and over when we need it the most.  Help us to not run away from it or ignore it, for then we are ignoring You in our lives, Lord.  Help us use Your words for strength – not as something to brush aside so we can go on in our own wayward ways.

Topics:  Pray to use God’s Word in every way possible to strengthen our witness for Him in pro-life work and all other done in His name.
