What does Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead have to do with Pro-Life?
Well, first let us ask ourselves, what His resurrection means to us personally?
Have you lost a loved one – someone very dear to you, because of death’s finality? Has the sting of death weighed you down with grief? Does your heart ache to see your loved one again? Or have you yourself been faced with your own mortality due to an illness?
Our Christian belief in the Resurrection eases the fear of death and lightens our grief over its loss.
As The poet wrote:
“Where is thy sting Oh Death!”
“Grave where thy victory?”
Who Weeps for These?
Martha and Mary grieved over their brother Lazarus, and when Jesus saw the people’s grief, he Himself wept. John ch. 11.
There are to date 56 million little souls who never even made it past the tomb of their mother’s womb.
One day when the final Resurrection is upon us, these 56 million little souls will also rise to face their mothers and their fathers, in some cases grandparents, AND
All the rest of us.
On that day, I hope we will be able to say that we did all within our power to try and save them – that we left no stone unturned – no sacrifice not made – that we did not keep silent in the face of their unjust death.
For as we celebrate the joy of Easter and the promise of the Resurrection, let us not forget that on that day there will also be an accounting. On that day, all the scales will be balanced, and we pray that we will not be found wanting in the scale of Pro-Life.
Let us ask ourselves if we have done all that we could to save them.
