Sometimes, in 21st century America, we lose sight of the preciousness of human life. But God admonished us to choose life:
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. (Deut. 30:19)
And often we say we are pro-life — we vote pro-life, we rally and march for life — and yet there must be more. Being pro-life must include men, women, and children — born and unborn.
If we counsel young women to not abort that child, we must be willing to go the distance and support her when she chooses life for that baby.
Keynote speaker at the October 2017 Pregnancy Aid of the South Suburbs (P.A.S.S.) fundraising event, Rev. Thomas Loya, a Byzantine Catholic priest, gives a stirring message all about life and seeing it all through God’s eyes, from God’s viewpoint.
Man was created with a purpose, woman was created with a purpose. We were made to fellowship with God and reflect His glory. We were made to have fellowship with each other, and thereby reflect His glory.
Explaining the P.A.S.S. mission on their website:
We offer free and confidential services, one-on-one mentoring and educational opportunities.
For those facing an unexpected pregnancy, we offer hope and practical support. For those who have experienced an abortion and are now struggling with their decision, we are here to listen and help.
For parents entering a new chapter of life, we offer resources and training.
For those at risk of unhealthy sexual behaviors we offer early intervention programs.
Watch the video of Rev. Loya’s keynote and be prepared to be stirred to do more for life, as he reminds everyone of the convicting words found in Matthew:
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21)
Watch the video and be convicted and challenged to treasure eternal things and see human life, as much as possible, through God’s loving eyes.
