What Could Celebrating Look Like?

 Meekly, Mournfully, Prayerfully...

NEVER did I expect to see in my lifetime Roe v. Wade being overturned! What an incredible moment and I look forward to hearing of stories of the lives of people who were only born because the Supreme Court of the United States declared after 50 years, that abortion is not a constitutional right.
If you feel like I do on this monumental decision, then you have probably wondered, “How do you celebrate something like this?” After reflecting on that question for a little while, here is my list.
1. Worshipfully.
2. Meekly.
3. Mournfully.
4. Hopefully.
5. Realistically.
6. Prayerfully.

Worshipfully because over FIFTY years of prayers were answered.
Meekly because a divided nation is responding very differently to the news.
Mournfully because this decision did not come as an act of repentance but as a legal technicality.
Hopefully that lives will be spared and more people will come to know, love, and serve Jesus as a result.
Realistically because this decision didn’t declare abortion wrong but that it wasn’t a right guaranteed by the Constitution.
Prayerfully because each of us have to live every day until Jesus returns with the consequences of sin that causes “wrong” to be seen as right and “right” as wrong.
I have many more thoughts on this subject which I will share at a later time but until then let us make the most of every day because . . .
20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:20–21 (NLT)
