Ps. 50:23   Thought/Prayer:  Thanksgiving, a Sacrifice?  Topics:  2 at end.

God:  “He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors me; . . . “

We have many thanksgivings to offer to God.  So what thanksgiving in particular does any pro-lifer have for God?  We thank God for our lives, for the lives of our family and friends, and for the life of His Son Jesus, given for all mankind.

But what regarding thanksgiving involves a sacrifice of it?  For the pro-life cause, let us ponder.  Could the sacrifice of thanksgiving for the lives so of the preborn involve the time given up to the causes of LIFE?  We can be so thankful that it takes pieces of our day to consider LIFE and to act toward it.

Could the sacrifice of thanksgivings for LIFE be that which we lay on the altar of our faith through Christ, that which replaces the old sacrifices of bulls and boats, the giving or ourselves to service for the unborn?  We are so thankful for life that we lay down ours in service.  Rom. 12:1. . . “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God.”

Maybe we think that a sacrifice has to be something that is very stringent, that has to, in a sense, cause pain.  This can at times be true.  But this psalm just asks us to offer up our thanks as a love sacrifice from thankful hearts – and for Christians, this may seem so easy it doesn’t seem sacrificial because we are so very thankful for God and His ways with us.

In pro-life, sacrifices as we serve, can readily be our thanks-givings.  Pray today that pro-lifers will offer out thanksgivings sacrificially and others will notice and begin to see our purposes for LIFE.

Pray for the Prayer Pivot for Life, that it will be run according to God’s plans.
