Good Stewards of God's Grace

This morning, I head off to a shower for one of the mamas I work with who chose life over abortion. She has become very dear to me, and requested I find a pastor to come to the shower to bless her new life, as she struggles to walk more closely with God. The pastor will be there, as overjoyed in her enthusiasm to follow God as I am.  I cannot tell you how blessed I am by her.

The diaper cake pictured above will be part of the shower, which is hosted by Truth and Mercy Pro-life Ministries who works closely with Cities4Life (http://www.truthandmercyprolife.org/)
There will be oodles of gifts, covering all the baby's equipment and clothing needs for the first full two years of the precious baby's life.

When I met "S", she pulled out of the abortion mill parking lot, and stopped near me after listening to us on  the sidewalks, counseling women to choose life and choose God. She was sobbing. "I can't do it!" she cried, "But I don't know what to do." Thus began our friendship.

Cities4Life supporters have helped buy her diapers for her other kids, provided a refrigerator, a dining room table and chairs, spiritual and financial counseling, a 3-D ultrasound, and daily bible texts to uplift and encourage her.

And today, Daniel Parks, the director of Cities4Life,  with Sheryl Chandler of Truth and Mercy, and I will present to her and her boyfriend this outpouring of gifts, a clear message of salvation and sexual purity, and the promise to walk alongside her on this journey for as long as she will have us.

I can't wait.

1 Peter 4:10 

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
