Additional Life Sunday Resources

They get labeled “political” and “social” and “moral.” But the reality is that the life issues are Matters of the Heart. They are spiritual issues that touch people’s hearts and souls. That is why the Church is compelled to address these issues because we have what it takes to speak to spiritual issues—the Gospel of Jesus Christ! The Gospel is the most powerful and positive life-affirming message in the universe. It is tailor made for Matters of the Heart. Our Life Sunday materials this year focus on increasing this understanding among God’s people and equipping them with resources and ideas for education and action in dealing with Matters of the Heart in their congregations and communities.

Your congregation can observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, January 18, 2015, or at any time during the year.

Sermons

Download Sermon: Listen to the Heart
PDF Word
Rev. Max Phillips summarizes his sermon based on Ezekiel 18:31-32 in this way, “The world has changed when it comes to life, there is no doubt. But God has not changed His mind or His mercy on it. His Son’s life is yours, now and forever!”

Download Sermon: Comforting Voices
PDF Word
Under the theme, Comforting Voices, based on Isaiah 40:1-2, Rev. Dave Paape talks of many voices. We hear many voices in our world regarding the value of life. There are voices of those struggling with difficult situations crying out for hope and comfort. But most importantly, there is the voice of God, in Jesus Christ, offering that hope and comfort. That is the voice we are privileged to share.

PDF Word
Rev. John Bradosky also uses the theme text Isaiah 40:1-2. He points God’s Law at all of us. “As we reflect on the need for celebrating Life Sunday we acknowledge that we are … all compromised in part by believing it is possible to accept both the values of the secular culture and Christian faith.” But then the Gospel! “His love for us in Jesus Christ has the power to free us from the bondage to all other idols, all competing cultural values, all self-destructive behaviors. This is the greatest word of comfort for our hearts.”

PDF Word PowerPoint
Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, in Matters of the Heart, from Isaiah 40:1-2, seeks to help us understand how the life issues are so much more than “political” or even “moral” issues. They are spiritual issues, matters of the heart. But we have what it takes to deal with such issues: the Gospel of Jesus Christ that speaks to hearts and changes hearts.
