The Sanctity of Life

The Sanctity of Life

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations (Jer 1:5). This is a beautiful passage. It is true that we are not all called to be prophets. But it is true that before we were formed in the womb God knew us. He formed our inward parts, knitted us together, gave us life and breath (Ps 139:13-14; Gen 2:7).
