I was unseen, but You saw me. I was unknown, but You knew me. A great opener or sermon starter for Sanctity of Life Sunday.
The sanctity of human life is a heavily debated topic in our society. However, the real issue is not “choice”, but instead “the origin of life”. According to Acts 17:25, God is the one who gives life and breath to everything. Each life has a purpose and worth beyond measure, because he or she was lovingly created by our Heavenly Father. Defend the powerless and speak for those who have no voice. Share this vitally important message on Sanctity of Life Sunday or anytime that you are preaching on the topics of right to life, abortion, the pro-life movement, or the sanctity of life.
