Watchman Nee was a Chinese Christian who was imprisoned for his faith from 1952 until his death in 1972. He wrote the book Sit, Walk, Stand, a study of Ephesians, while imprisoned in the 1950s.
I recently studied a devotional based on it, and I was reminded of our work to protect unborn children and help them have abundant lives in Christ.
I thought especially about the men and women working in Care Net’s more than 1,100 pregnancy centers who bravely fight for life despite being often misunderstood and actively hindered.
These faithful workers are certain of their place in Christ. They sit with Him at the Father’s throne (Ephesians 2:6), peaceful, knowing God is with them always as they serve Him. They are strengthened to operate in a culture that devalues unborn lives and disguises abortion as a harmless “choice”.
But they “walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which [they] have been called” (Ephesians 4:1). They walk with the Lord, confident that the compassion, hope, and help that they provide honors God.
Finally, they are ready to “stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:11). The gates of Hell will not prevail (Matthew 16:18) against those who understand the Enemy and fight the spiritual battles through Christ to save lives and build families.
Please pray with me for Care Net’s centers as they continue to fight for life, and thank you for your prayers and support as we sit, walk, and stand together in Christ!
