Serving: There Is Strength In Numbers in the Fight for Life

For You From The Word

 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12, ESV)

For You To Think About

people putting hands together to show solidarityYou’ve heard it before: “There is strength in numbers.” In fact, scripture tells us that “a threefold cord is not quickly broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

Joseph of Arimathea was a wealthy, respected member of the Sanhedrin, the Jewish council of leaders.

But Joseph secretly followed Jesus as Israel’s Messiah. Ramifications would be significant if other members of the council knew of Joseph’s convictions.

Even so, Joseph mustered his courage after the crucifixion and asked Pilate for Jesus’ body, Nicodemus came alongside him. Together, these two godly leaders wrapped the body with linens provided by Joseph and anointed it with spices provided by Nicodemus. They worked together to secure the tomb with the stone.

These two men pooled their spiritual, financial, and physical resources to minister to our Lord.

You don’t need to fight this fight alone. There is strength in numbers.

For You to Pray

Thank you for the strength you provide in numbers. Point me to people who share my passion for life and for serving women who face an unplanned pregnancy. Help us to join forces.

In Jesus name. Amen.
