Mike Warren, in a few simple words, reminds us all of what we are to be about this 39th Memorial of Roe v. Wade, as we consecrate ourselves again to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords – JESUS!    ~ Flip


Dear Friends,

Here are some considerations as we approach the 39th Anniversary of the Roe Vs. Wade decision and the murder of 60 million unborn children.

Memorial & Consecration

Each year at this time, memorials are held around our nation focusing on the United States Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision, and the fallout that has occurred from that horrendous act. Since 1973 and the overturning of every abortion law in these United States, nearly 60 million babies have been murdered, millions of women and men wounded, and the medical profession tainted. The blood that has been spilled has a voice and though we may be deaf to its cry; it echoes loudly in heaven and heaven listens. Our nation has tasted some of the unintended consequences of turning its back on the law of God; unfortunately, there is much more on the way. American responses to this tragedy have come and gone and some continue.

But as we prepare for another Roe memorial, let’s take a look in the mirror. The mirror of God’s word and remember who we, ministers and lay people alike, are supposed to be. We need to dust off the historical accounts of victories won when the saints influenced and changed the culture rather than reflected it. The victories of slavery overturned in the West, temple prostitution banned in India, the rise of the status and protection of women, the rise of hospitals and the care of the needy and the sick, the demise of tyranny, all these and more find their nexus in the gospel of Jesus Christ. These were not just legislative victories but victories that reflected change in the heart condition of the citizens.

These changes were brought on by the power of the gospel released by passionate and pointed preaching that addressed the bondages and vices of the age and by a response of repentance and action by the Christian that heard.

Consecration is defined as “the act or ceremony of separating from a common to a sacred use, or the devoting and dedicating a person or thing to the service of God,” (Webster’s 1828 Dictionary) This January 22 we need to incorporate consecration gatherings rather than just memorials as we reflect on the fallout of the Roe vs. Wade decision. 60 million babies murdered calls for nothing less than desperate yielding to the Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let’s newly consecrate ourselves, not to a cause, but to Him who saved us and washed us from our sins, separating ourselves anew unto Jesus. When that occurs our faith will be evidenced with actions and victory will not be afar off.
