Ending the practice of abortion-on-demand seems like an insurmountable task, and it is if all we have to trust in is ourselves. But we trust in the Lord, and we are bound to fight for what is right, knowing that He will honor our struggle. There are many fronts on which we can fight abortion in our culture, including electing pro-life politicians, supporting crisis pregnancy centers, promoting adoption, and caring for unwed mothers in our churches and communities.
Today’s passage helps us to understand that there is no such thing as a Christian who does not possess the Holy Spirit. To belong to Christ Jesus is to possess His Spirit, so if you have rested in Christ alone for salvation, the Holy Spirit does indwell you, and He is at work in your life. Let us remember this always, that we may be confident that the Spirit is working in and through us even when it is hard for us to see or feel it.
