Sunday Morning:

 

Psalm 139:13-16 “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made”

The Big Idea: All human life, from conception to death, regardless of the circumstances of conception or the level of dependence or functionality, is fearfully and wonderfully made by the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God of the universe and therefore abortion and euthanasia are wicked callous assaults on God who nonetheless mercifully offers not only forgiveness but justification by faith alone in His blameless Son Jesus Christ for all who trust in Him.
