§ 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.

Rom.12:4-8 (Pt. 5) How to Give, Rule, Show Mercy.  Topics:2@ end.

“For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don’t have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one f another. Having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us, if prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of our faith; or service, let us give ourselves to service; or he who teaches, to his teaching; or he who exhorts, to his exhorting: he who gives, let him do it with liberality; he who rules, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

The last three gifts mentioned here, we can see, have to do with giving, ruling and that beautiful quality, mercy.  The giver is to be liberal with gifts.  The ruler is to work hard at ruling, to be diligent.  And the   merciful?  Be cheerful along with it!

These three gifts from God span a lot of qualities.  And how is it that those who love to give would not be liberal?  Consider it—giving things to others.  Sometimes don’t we think we want to give someone something . . . but then when we get ready to give, maybe we hold back a little and don’t gift the person with all we had mentally pictured?  Do we lesson the gift because we may want to keep part of something for ourselves?

Of course we want our rulers to approach ruling with due diligence.  I suppose we could respect a ruler who works hard at it even if we do not agree with his or her methods or views on things.  (But when dictators treat their citizens with cruelty and death, we, of course, would not be able to respect them even if they work hard day in, day out.)

Mercy with cheerfulness?  What other way is there to be merciful?  Perhaps being so merciful that we cannot stay objective?  Being so merciful that we are always crying over someone’s situation?  Maybe, according to this, it is wise to show mercy while also detaching ourselves a bit from the situation. But it can be hard to do this!  And not that we are to never cry with someone . . . but maybe we are to ask the Lord to help us with His mercy . . . a mercy that does not bog down into inability to serve because of emotional embedding.

These gifts are varied and dealt with as described.  God covers the range of everything in His Word.  Lord, help us to apply ourselves to our gifts given by You, in ways of Your approval as we see in Your Word.     

Topics:  Pray for the ability to serve with our God-given gifts, in His God-prescribed way and for victories in LIFE situations.
