Life Thoughts from Lutherans for Life

July 4 – Pentecost VI (Proper 9B) – Many in the world and some in the churches won’t listen to the sanctity of human life. It doesn’t mean we’ve failed. Both Ezekiel (Ezekiel 2:5) and Jesus (Mark 6:3) experienced rejection. So, we may borrow their boldness. The Lord perfects His power (2 Corinthians 12:9) even in surprise pregnancy or terminal diagnosis. His creating, redeeming, and calling grace prevails in our weakness as well. And all ages, appearances, and abilities will know He Himself has been among them.
