Scripture: Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
Devotional: It’s important, as we end this week’s devotions, to consider the millions of women and men who have an abortion in their past. Women, and the men who have been complicit in the killing of their children, need the grace and forgiveness of God.
There is no sin that is unpardonable by the powerful blood of Jesus. Jesus’ prayer to His Father as the crowd in Jerusalem condemned Him, an innocent person, was a prayer of forgiveness.
Abortion is the “dirty little secret” that you don’t often hear spoken of in the church. It’s one of the most hidden and shame-filled burdens that a person can carry. And that should not be.
Here at Sunnybrook, we desire to see every person set free from the burden of shame in their lives. That’s why we have a ministry to those who have abortion in their past; a ministry to facilitate healing and forgiveness; a ministry led by those who have experienced this themselves, and who have been recipients of God’s amazing grace.
- If you, or someone you know has an abortion in their past, help is available. Just head out to our website at sunnybrookchurch.org and click on the Fearfully & Wonderfully Made page.
