Dear Friend of Life,
Affirming life is hardly a party. Speaking the truth of God’s Word is no mere hobby. Showing the love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ isn’t just some preference or lifestyle. Our mission is more than personal interests or political issues. This service we undertake is struggle and battle. This labor we engage in is warfare. Respecting and protecting the gift of life is THE war, and it is OUR war. We are fighting for our culture, our conscience, our civilization. As Lutherans For Life we are fighting for our country, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our future. The time for simply standing by has passed. The luxury of only looking on left long ago.
God has entered our world as Jesus Christ! He has achieved victory of life over death for us. Now we get to announce it. And we get to enact it.
You and I have become witnesses and participants. Evil makes itself barest and boldest right in the middle of the matters we attend to. Souls entangled in these injuries and scars lie within our reach, with no less than their salvation at stake. Hearts strapped to failures and trapped by fears suffer beside us, with their very lives on the line. The devil’s deceptions about a person’s preciousness endanger the identities and realities of those near to us. They feel ashamed and anxious, artificial and all alone. They are our own flesh and blood—and there but for the grace of God go we.
Yet joy—relentless Christian joy—belongs on this battlefield. And hope—fierce Gospel hope—is made for these frontline moments.
Brothers and sisters, here we stand, with the sword of our Creator and Savior in hand! We are raising it up—as He has raised us up—not to smite opponents or slay competitors—but to sever chains and set oppressed and even condemned prisoners free!
You know what struggling, suffering, and crumpling sin’s smoldering gravity causes. And you know what deliverance, what emancipation, what blessed abandon the Gospel voice brings.
Will you enter the action alongside us? With your gift, we can plant the flag of Christ’s unconditional acceptance in their hearts!
Your gift sustains the jubilant resistance by enabling us to further equip Lutherans with greater Gospel motivation as voices for life. Your gift amplifies our message that the Lord’s loving actions—rather than any human abilities, efforts, accomplishments, or offerings—make every person priceless. Let’s lift high the cross in every congregation and every community until all together uphold the God-given blessing each human life is!

Other Ways to Give Now
Owen’s Mission is a very special project of Lutherans For Life. The goal of this project is to honor Jesus by presenting a set of Touch of Life fetal models to every Lutheran elementary and high school in the country. (That’s 1078 schools affecting 139,000 students!) We want students to understand the God-given value of each life from the moment of conception. We want students to be motivated by what God has done as our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier that gives value to life. We want students to value themselves and to value others as persons because of this God-given value.
