Rick started a new series on S.H.A.P.E. (Spiritual Gift, Heart, Abilities, Personality and Experience) and had some fantastic things to say this weekend about the sanctity of life and how God created us specifically for His purpose. He specifically mentioned abortion, which he clearly stated is wrong according to the Bible. Great scriptures, here’s a few of the ones he used:

“You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother’s body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother’s body. When I was put together there, you saw my body as it was formed. All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old.” Ps. 139:13-16 (NCV)

“Your hands formed and shaped me…” Job 10:8a (GN)

“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A spokesman to the nations – that’s what I had in mind for you.” Jer. 1:5 (MSG)
