Most often when we hear the word "pro-life" we think of abortion. Emotions heighten even for devoted Christians. Because the word is politicized, we're afraid of it. We're afraid to use it, misuse it, or offend people with it.
However, being pro-life is not political at all. Instead, it is an embodiment of the mission of Jesus Christ. "Pro-life" literally means "for life." The Bible teaches us that Jesus is life (John 1:4; John 14:6) and that He came to give us life (John 10:10). For a person to say he or she is a follower of Jesus and not "for life" is an oxymoron.
Our enemy knows all of this. He knows that Jesus is life and brings life into the world. Our enemy is the opposite of life. He is the embodiment of death whose mission is to "kill, steal, and destroy" (John 10:10). He created the system of politicizing initiatives that are for life because he does not want to see life continue or flourish.
Even though we get hung up on pro-life being only about abortion, there is more to it than that. A person who is "for life" is "for all life" in all circumstances. Jesus did not pick-and-choose life, and nor should we.
Here are ten ways we can be pro-life for all life.
