Cradle My Heart Radio encore presentation of Reverend Dr. Jim Lamb week of Dec 25
As we ponder the miracle of Jesus coming in the flesh it can be faith-building to realize that the Son of God became a zygote–literally a speck–to accomplish the work of salvation for all humankind.
Rev. Dr. Jim Lamb will join us Christmas week for an encore presentation of this unique perspective focused on the conception of Jesus and the value this gives to every human life. Because Jesus was an embryo, He gives value to all embryos and all life at every stage of development. God could have chosen to send a baby fully formed, or even a child or adult. The fact that Jesus’ full humanity includes a human conception illustrates the worth of all human life from the very earliest stages.
Reverend Lamb also has a pastor’s heart to the broken, resonating the love and mercy of God toward those of us who have made the fatal mistake of choosing abortion. In his message Healing Broken Hearts he acknowledges that when the reality of a past abortion decision strikes, a heart is broken. This messages recognizes that grief after abortion is a very real struggle for many women and men involved in making this “choice.”
He exhorts pastors and fellow Christians to be proactive to understand and reach out to those hurting because of an abortion decision, “See these folks are in our pews. They not only need to hear the Gospel, they need to hear it applied to the sin of abortion. They need to hear hope, the message of hope.”
