Anyone who reads the Bible knows that God has from the beginning forbidden any individual person from taking away another person's life. On the contrary, clearly in the Bible, every person has been told to be kind, pity, help, care for, and provide for the lives and welfare of any person whenever we come across them in our daily lives, when they are helpless, injured, sick, weak, needy, elderly or helpless infants.
As Christians we know that God alone has the power to create, sustain, and take life. His word is not abstract or unclear. We are given the responsibility to protect, conserve, and value the life our Lord has entrusted to us.
Go around the circle and ask each participant to thank God for a gift, ability, challenge God has given them concerning the sanctity of life.
Remember to thank God for bringing all who came to these classes and for what He has taught them by the Holy Spirit. Also ask God to show them how He wants them to apply what they have learned in these classes to their daily lives and activities according to His will and purpose.
Close in prayer.
