Whenever speaking about controversial topics such as abortion, or homosexuality it is imperative we remember the fact that the heart of God is one of grace and mercy. The Bible says it this way:
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” (Psalm 103:8)
Grace is God’s unmerited favor. Grace is a gift we do not deserve and can not earn. Mercy is not getting the punishment we do deserve. Not one of us can stand before the living God on our own merits. We must all accept His marvelous gifts of grace and mercy through the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ, God’s Son, in our place.
Abortion takes the life of an innocent baby. The Bible calls this murder. God’s heart to those who have committed this act is one of compassion and grace to all who confess and turn from their sin.
1 John 1:8-9 Says, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
This is one of the best explanations of unborn babies I have ever heard! God’s blessings!
