In Psalm 1:30 we read, “For with the Lord is kindness, and fullness of redemption.” He does not give us only the redemption of some or most aspects of our existence; He gives us the fullness of redemption. He does not only destroy our sins – He destroys our death. He does not only raise up our souls; He raises up our bodies. He does not only restore our relationship with Him; He restores our relationships with everyone else.
The Lord gives us fullness of redemption, which means He frees us from all that oppresses the human family. And that is precisely the connection between our faith and our pro-life work. When we labor to end the oppression of children in the womb, we are bearing witness to what the fullness of redemption means.
