It should be known beyond doubt, that human life is sacred, holy and priceless. This is why Jesus said to let “little children come to me and do not forbid them for such is the kingdom of God”, Luke 18:16. The uniqueness of human life and our invaluable spiritual nature, is part of the many reasons why Christians defend pro-life ministries and denounce abortion. The life-giving Spirit of Christ is holy and powerful to enable the church to stand against and speak out against the lies of pro-choice movements, ideologies, policies and laws promoting abortion. In the mind of Christians, we are able to cast down and bring into captivity every thought that is against the knowledge of God, 2nd Corinthians 10:5. This is not because we are better educated in the Scriptures, rather it is because what we do know in the Scriptures is empowered by the holiness of Christ’s Spirit, who lives within our hearts. Holiness is what makes God’s power omnipotent! Psalm 68:35, Luke 1:35, Acts 1:8, 10:38, Romans 15:13, 1st Thessalonians 1:5 & Revelation 20:6.
The power of God displayed throughout our universe is undeniably astounding. We can see the divine power and eternal life of the Spirit in three ways:
The Creation, Genesis 1:2 & Psalm 104:30, Romans 1:19-20.
The Resurrection of Christ, Romans 1:4
The Strength of Spirituality in Humanity, Romans 1:9 & 15:19 & 1st Corinthians 2:4.
When Jesus healed people, he sometimes pointed out that more power was being displayed in forgiving a person, than physically healing a person. The Holy Spirit in Christ was at work most powerfully in being able to cleanse a single soul, rather than when he was healing a hundred paralytics or broken limbs. Read Matthew 9:1-8 and ask yourself this question: What is the critics accusation against? Christ’s power to forgive, or to heal? It was the fact that Jesus claimed to be God that led his critics to try to kill him and eventually publicly cry “crucify him”, John 5:18. The Eternal life giving Spirit is truly demonstrating the power to give life when He cleanses and forgives a soul, because God restores life forever, but restoring a physical illness is only temporary. You see God sanctifies our spirit with His Spirit when we are being forgiven, Romans 15:16.
If you ever feel weak in your discipleship or in trying to spread God’s word, never forget the most effective and greatest servant of the Lord in His eyes was John the Immersionist and yet he never performed a single miracle. Matthew 11:11 & John 10:41
