In our current series, Restoring Foundations, we are discovering biblical truths about 5 fundamental realities that affect every aspect of our lives. This week, we are starting to look at Reality #5, The Sanctity of Life.
All human life is sacred, from conception to natural death. Life is the first right and the one necessary to receive all other rights. Life is a precious gift from God. We are the highest of His creation and every one of us is made in His image, with the greatest possible value.
'What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, And hast crowned him with glory and honour.' Psalm 8:4-5 KJV
Our lives actually belong to God and we were made for His purpose and for His pleasure. Remember in the Laws of Grace we talked about ownership and how the creator of something is the owner of that thing. God created us for communion with Him and there is nothing more precious in His eyes. Every human being is created with a purpose and God knows every one by name. You have a purpose, you are precious and you are loved by the Creator of all things. How great is that?
