Life Quotes

November 5, 2017: “God calls us all to support widows and orphans, but that certainly does not mean every person is equipped to adopt a child. You can support a child in need without becoming his or her parent. Consider sponsoring a child overseas, going on a short-term mission trip to an orphanage, or financially supporting couples who adopt children through adoption grant-giving organizations. There are many ways to become involved.” — Kim Laube, B.A., Lutheran Family Service, Urbandale, Iowa. – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life

October 29, 2017: “I have people say, ‘We need to go out and see people saved.’ I’ve got news for you: They don’t even know that they’re lost ... Where Luther nailed those theses on the door of the church, we need to be going to churches, Christian colleges, seminaries, Bible colleges in this day and age and nailing Genesis 1-11 on the doors because that’s where we’ve lost biblical authority.” Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life

October 22, 2017: “The Eternal Being, who knows everything and who created the whole universe, became not only a man but (before that) a baby, and before that a fetus in a woman’s body.” C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life

Run the Race

Let us throw off everything that hinders...and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” (Hebrews 12: 1b), exhorts the writer to the Hebrews.  Perseverance is the key in our race.  Scripture challenges us to stand firm, knowing that our labor for God is not in vain.  We're commanded to hold fast to our faith and to keep God's ways.   As we run the race with perseverance, we are filled with “inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8) in our Savior in Whom we believe, even though we haven't seen Him.  Although the race is long and difficult, we have an eternal goal and consider any suffering or distress but "light and momentary troubles" (2 Corinthians 4: 17).

Prayer:

“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”
— Jeremiah 29:12
