I find it quite amazing that man, with all his attempts to minimize the abortion of various species in the animal kingdom by investing billions of dollars to protect animals, plants and the ozone layer; has neglected to prioritize the position of human beings in the scheme of things. While man fights to protect whales, owls, trees and fish, he also battles for the right to terminate human babies. Perhaps the situation would improve if every doctor who performs this tragic operation would be reminded before each abortion that the opportunity to perform this surgery is his only because his mother did not abort him!
Focus Point: This abortion issue is not just a problem of the taking of a life, even though that is the fatal result. More than that, abortion is the ignorance and the lack of understanding of the principle of potential that pervades our world.
Focus Point: I will say this, those who die each year without fulfilling their purpose are guilty of abortion because they didn't understand the basic relevance of the concept of potential to their individual lives.
Please note: The abortion of potential is the death of the future.
Focus Point: When Adam broke God's law, which was disobedience, he aborted his seed's potential for becoming all they were intended to be. Men and women throughout the ages have fallen far short of the glory of the Creator.
Focus Point: Keep in mind: The word glory means "true nature" or "full essence" of a thing. In other words, to fall short of glory means to live below your true potential. This is what God our Creator calls sin.
Please note: Sin is not a behavior, it is a disposition. One of the great Constitutional writers states it in this manner:
Constitutional Scripture: Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19) For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
Focus Point: This states that the fall of man prevented the full glory or true potential of mankind from being revealed or manifested. Remember, all creation is waiting for man's glory or true potential to be exposed because creation's destiny is tied to man's. Because of this, any abortion, whether it's the abortion of a dream--a vision--art--music--writing--business--leadership--or inventions, it affects both nature and the succeeding generations of man.
Remember this: When Adam aborted the vision God had placed in his heart and disobeyed the directives of the Manufacturer, he changed the lives of all humanity.
Constitutional Scripture: Romans 5:12, 18 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—18) Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
Remember this one thing: The fact that you were born is evidence that God knew earth needed your potential and you are pregnant with it. It is, therefore, imperative that you refuse to leave this planet called earth without giving birth to those dreams, ideas, visions and inventions you carry in the womb of your faith right now.
Focus Point: Remember, we walk by faith not by sight.
Constitutional Scripture: II Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
