Sanctity of Life Sunday 2013

Proverbs 31:8-9
Today we affirm our belief that human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, including the unborn, the aged, the mentally impaired, the poor, the unattractive, the physically challenged and every other condition in which humanness is expressed from conception to the grave. We believe life is sacred.
We live in a time in which people would rather die than continue living with less than a perfect "quality of life."
Those at Risk are The Dependent
  • Total killed due to abortion since  the 1973 court cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton – 55,808,387 (40 years)
  • 95-98% of all abortions are for convenience sake.
  • Total abortions performed in Texas every day – 220
Understanding the Value of LIFE
  1. L ikeness - Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being”
All Human Life Is Precious and To Be Protected Because Humans Alone Bear The Image Of GodGenesis 1:26-27
Men, women and children created in God’s image should be respected, regardless of their mental capacity, physical ability, age, faith (or absence of faith) or social position.
Human dignity is an innate value, bestowed on us by God by being made in His image. It is not based on the ability to care for ourselves or competence to complete a task.
  1. I ntricate - Psalm 139:13 "You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
  2. F oreknowledge - Psalm 139:16 “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you not to harm you and to give you hope and a future.”         
  3. E steem -  Psalm 139:27 "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you."
The value of man is determined by:
·      The Estimation of God
·      The Manner of Man’s Creation
·      The Sacrifice of God’s Son for All
