There are so many opinions out there today that I hesitate to add my own, but as I sit and reflect on this past week, I just cannot resist sharing what the Lord has laid on my heart.

Satan, our enemy, the deceiver, the thief…his goal is to steal, kill, and destroy, and that is what we see him doing here in our beloved country and world. He has turned us against one another. He has instigated chaos, corruption, violence, and death. As I think on his tactics, I see one major way that Satan has gained a dangerous foothold in our nation.

As a nation, we no longer view life as sacred, and I believe that is one of Satan’s greatest goals. Satan wants to do anything in his power to steal, kill, and destroy the LIFE that Jesus came to bring. (John 10:10) 

The enemy has deceived us, as a nation, into DEVALUING LIFE. How did we fall for his trap? Why have we believed these lies? When did we forget that LIFE is sacred? Every single life is sacred. As believers in Jesus Christ, we must stand for life and fight against the enemies tactics to devalue life.

I stand and contend for black lives. I stand and contend for white lives. I stand and contend for unborn babies’ lives. I stand and contend for the life of the person who wants to take his own. I stand for every single life because I know that each person was created in the image of our Creator God. Every life matters.

May we stand boldly as believers in Jesus Christ and stand for LIFE. All lives. For those who are oppressed, for those who are vulnerable, for those who are unable to stand for themselves – may we FIGHT for LIFE, and remember that each life is valuable – equally as valuable as any other – and even more valuable to our mighty God than we could ever imagine.
