Life. Life is an amazing thing if you stop and think about it.

It is something that is hard for even doctors to know what that intrinsic quality is that makes all of the cells of our body a living thing.

Think about that for a moment.

Our bodies are made up of all kinds of cells that are all working together.

But someone who has just died has all the same cells in his body that they had when they were alive a minute before, and yet that thing we call life has left them.

What is it that starts those cells working together and then keeps them working?

When is it that Life begins?

Today we are continuing our series entitled “too Hot to handle” and we will be discussing Abortion

and what God thinks about this practice and

How we as Christians should respond.

First we want to see who it is who is the Giver of life.

In the Bible, we can read in the very first book Genesis about when God created the first man. It says in

Genesis 2:7

That “the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”

Here we see that

God Gives Life

Slide

He gave life to the first man, Adam, by forming him out of the dust of the ground.

That doesn’t seem to be quite the way that God creates man anymore, because it appears that for Adam, He created a full grown man. It seems that subsequent life comes out as a baby.

When does life begin now and

is God still the giver of life or has he given that responsibility to man?

Turn with me to Psalm 139

This whole psalm is one of my favorites. We are going to be reading in verses 13-16 and see that God is still the One who gives life

Psalm 139:13-16

13 For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,

I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you

when I was made in the secret place.

When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.

Even before our bodies were formed, God saw us.

In fact God tells Jeremiah

Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you”

God is the one who creates us and knits us together in our mother’s womb and knows us as a person before we are even completely formed in the womb and gives us life there.

While man and woman are involved in the supplying the egg and the sperm that God has given them, it is God who knits them together and creates a life.

Human life is created

And not only is life created, but it is a human life.

Why is that significant?

Because when God gives humans life,

God Gives life…

…that Reflects His Image
