God is pro-life!
How’s that for a loaded statement?
This is not to say that I know whom Jesus would vote for. It’s not to say that there is one right way to structure public policy that would both empower women and protect all people. There is a lot that I’m not sure of when it comes to this contentious quagmire.
But, this I can say with the confidence of something that starts on page one of the Scripture and ends on the very last page. GOD IS FOR LIFE!
– He breathed the breath of LIFE into man so that we became a “LIVING SOUL”
– He warned us against turning away from HIM saying that in doing so… “You will surly die!”
– He creates every life in detail (Psalm 139) then claims them for himself – “Behold all lives are mine.” (Eze 18:4)
– God says in the Torah – “Choose life”
– Jesus says in the Gospel – “I came that you might have life”
– At the end of Revelation the Spirit invites us to take, “the water of life”
God, the creator, God the savior, God the sustainer is all about life!
Our problem is we don’t value what God values. This shows up in so many ways in our society. Almost every form of injustice is, at root, a failure to value life. We treat others as objects that either serve or hinder our interests. We exploit the vulnerable and profit off of the weak. This is us moving away from God, the one who is life and this is us rejecting Jesus the one who “has life in Himself” (John 5:26).
That’s why I am so glad that Journey works with Life Perspectives. LP is about valuing what God values.
Their mission is
Educating men, women and youth to value their own lives and the lives of others
They write, speak, train and coach to get this done. It’s not a political advocacy (although there is a place for that). It’s far more “up-stream”. It’s more about changing the way we think and what we value.
So as a part of our partnership we are diving into LIFE WALK! We have over 25 people walking and lots more sponsoring. It would be great if YOU DECIDED TO DO THE WALK. It’s fun! It’s inspiring! You will meet other people from Journey. If you can’t walk, you can pledge to one of us doing the walking. How about me for example?

Let’s be a little more God like and value LIFE. And let’s step up to the plate and do something very practical to make this happen! I hope you find a way to participate in LIFE WALK.
