You've probably seen displays of thousands of crosses on church lawns, representing the number of babies killed by abortion every day. Many times, despite the magnitude of the display, the message receives little attention.
This morning I came across a video from Channel 12 about a man arrested for damaging the pro-life cross display at St. Cecilia in Oakley. While it's upsetting that many of the crosses were damaged (they think due to intoxication, not necessarily to animosity toward the message), it appears that Romans 8:28 came into play.
Romans 8:28 says, "We know that all things work for the good of those who love Christ Jesus." While the damage and disrespect done to the crosses is not good in any way, God was able to use this negative situation to bring light to the pro-life display on the news. Just think of how many more people have been exposed to the statement made by the little white crosses because of the news story.
Even when we feel discouraged or persecuted for our pro-life convictions, we have to remember that God is still guiding us and leading us into the Truth.
