Scriptures On Abortion (Forgiveness, Value of Children)
Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, â€śI will confess my rebellion to the Lord.â€ť
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Interlude
Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him againâ€”my Savior and my God!
Donâ€™t keep looking at my sins. Remove the stain of my guilt.Â Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.Â He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.Â He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagleâ€™s!
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.Â He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever.Â He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.Â For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.Â He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my motherâ€™s womb.Â Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelousâ€”how well I know it.Â You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.Â You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
â€śCome now, letâ€™s settle this,â€ť says the Lord. â€śThough your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson,Â I will make them as white as wool.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
â€śI knew you before I formed you in your motherâ€™s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.â€ť
Isaiah 49:1, 5
Listen to me, all you in distant lands! Pay attention, you who are far away! The Lord called me before my birth; from within the womb he called me by name.
And now the Lord speaksâ€”the one who formed me in my motherâ€™s womb to be his servant, who commissioned me to bring Israel back to him. The Lord has honored me, and my God has given me strength.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
1 John 1:9
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
