Text- Psalm 139 1- Human life is created with value. Genesis 2:7 ”And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” -God is the creator and giver of life. John 1:1-3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” -Mankind was created with a purpose Genesis 2:5-6 “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;” 2- Human life is created with a vision. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” -God has created us with a plan already in place for our lives. Psalm 139:14-18 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.” -UNPERFECT translates to UNFORMED! -Yet still we had a purpose upon creation!! 3- There will be vengeance for the taking of innocent human life. Psalm 139:19-24 “Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Proverbs 6:16-19 “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” -It is clear that God is a god of mercy, but also of Justice and Judgement. -We must be separated from those who practice abominable acts of sin. -Not a neutral position, going nowhere… being swayed in every direction, but standing firm on God’s Word! -The lines have been drawn, and we must be willing to stand on the right side of God’s Word! As His servants, we should love what God loves and we should hate what God hates! -Abortion is murder. No murderer will have his place in Heaven. (Rev. 21:8) Conclusion- God abhors all sin, and mankind is ultimately sinful, so we must repent of our sinful ways and believe. Jesus is our only hope, the ONLY way to Heaven!
