Your Mercies are New

February 28, 2021 / Lamentations 3:22-23

The question: How do Christians have a conversation with someone who has been affected by abortion. 

The problem: People affected by abortions do not usually feel comfortable talking to Christians or the Church.  

The reality: More people have been affected by abortion than you or I realize. 

The opportunity: As the Church and as Christians we need to allow people to share their abortion experience without fear of rejection.

The solution: God’s attributes teach us how to respond.

1. God is (1 John 4:19; John 3:16)

  • Be willing to have a conversation in love
  • Be willing to listen and learn their story
  • Donate to Crisis Pregnancy Center or Options 360
  • Donate to a Women’s Shelter

2. God is (Matthew 9:36; Luke 7:13)

  • Contact local a high school to see how you can help with their Teen Mom program
  • If you have an extra room; call Planned Parenthood and ask if there are pregnant women you can house

3. God is (Psalm 145:8-9; Lamentations 3:22-23)

  • Remind someone affected by abortion there is a God, and God has mercy and forgiveness
  • Pray with them to be freed from shame
  • If you’re not the person for them to talk to, find someone who they feel comfortable with

Questions to Consider

  1. Why do you think it’s so hard to talk about abortions?
  2. Why do so many people with an abortion story hesitate to talk about it to Christians?
  3. How would you respond if you discovered your best friend or wife had an abortion early in her life?
  4. What are some biblical ways Christians can respond to someone who has an abortion story?
