It Starts with a Conversation

 

The “LOVE LIKE THIS” Series

Help People Value Life

Help People Value Life

First, Seek Him...

Life is devalued in our world. Babies are aborted, teenagers commit suicide, people are made to feel inferior or less valuable. This ought not to be so – and especially amongst God’s people. He calls us to join Him in valuing life. What does this look like in your life? Do YOU value life?

...Then Speak Him

Teaching the next generation their value is an ongoing conversation. It begins with their own personal value then transitions into how they value others. Intentionally having conversations about the value of life can make a difference in this life and in the one to come!

Listen to the Podcast

Jesus’ words in John 10:10
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

We all enjoy getting more of good things, but Jesus came to give us more of the very best thing:  life. He gives us our physical breath of life, and He also offers to give us spiritual eternal life. The “abundant” life is the blessing of both! When we truly value physical life as well as spiritual life, we value what He values! ~ What are some good things you’d like more of? What does it mean to “value” something? What does Jesus value? What is the “abundant” life?

Why

God, why does this matter?

God creates life! He made us in His image, and He loves us. We cannot create life like He does, but we can love what He loves. “The thief” Satan seeks to kill and destroy life, but we don’t want to be on his team in any way! We want to intentionally love and value all life, reflecting our Creator God who loves and values each of us. ~ What are some ways that Satan steals and destroys life? Do any of his methods ever bring blessing or love? How does life bring blessing? How do we reflect God’s image when we value life?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

Moses said, “I call heaven and earth against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore, choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to Him, for he is your life…” (30:19-20a). God wants us to “choose life” as well as “hold fast to Him, for He is our life.” This may mean we literally cling to the Lord when our life or the life of someone we love is in jeopardy. We need to hold onto Him as we value life in a world that does not. When we love and value life, we are “loving the Lord (our) God” too. ~ Do we need to cling to the Lord for someone’s life today? What is a tangible way we can value that person’s life?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

God wants us to “LOVE LIKE THIS: Help People Value Life.”  To help people value life, we set the example by loving and valuing people – all people:  the born and unborn, the young and old, every race and every religion. “Love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God” (1 John 4:7). Loving people through valuing life is a way we worship God and show that we know His heart of love! ~ Let’s pray that we would be people who reflect God’s heart by loving and valuing life!

Jesus’ words in John 10:10
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
