From Scott Licht, national director of Lutherans For Life:
Last September, I began my position as national director, taking over most of Dr. Lamb’s day-to-day administrative duties. While he continues to serve as our executive director, this change allows him to focus on what he loves—and what he is best at—serving LFL and our Lord of Life through his proclamation in written word and from the pulpit. Dr. Lamb now has more opportunity to share the message of the sanctity and value of ALL human life.
As a newcomer to Lutherans For Life, I consider it a great honor to be able to share with you this message of Easter joy and triumph. “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die’” (John 11:25-26a ESV). These were Jesus’ words to Martha when He came to raise Lazarus (Martha’s brother) from the dead. We Christians know the rest of the story. Yes, Jesus miraculously raised Lazarus, but Jesus Himself was raised on Easter morning proclaiming His victory over sin, death, and the power of the devil and assuring believers of their own resurrection and everlasting life with Him.
On Good Friday, Jesus died. Mary, John, and several others wept over His death as they placed His lifeless body in the borrowed tomb. There was sorrow and mourning among Jesus’ mother and friends. But the world was changed on Sunday morning. Sorrow was turned to joy, the darkness of Good Friday was replaced by the brilliant light of Easter morning, death was defeated by life. God’s creative, regenerative, and restorative powers were never more evident than when Jesus rose from the dead!
Only through His Gospel message of forgiveness may a post-abortive woman truly find complete healing and comfort.
Only through God’s wisdom and power may a young woman make the right decision regarding an unexpected pregnancy.
Only through the healing and comforting love of God may an elderly man realize that his life still has purpose and that he is still precious to God.
Only in the loving arms of God may someone considering suicide be led from the brink of disaster.
I just want you to know that what God does through LFL touches real people with real problems. It brings restoration, hope, and life.
