As a faithful follower and supporter of The Jesus Alliance, I wanted you to be among the first to know about big changes at The Jesus Alliance. After months of prayer, I nominated my good friend, Michael Phillips, to be my replacement as CEO. Earlier this month, our Board of Directors unanimously approved the measure. God has been moving in this ministry since the day I had the vision for it, and we undoubtedly feel His hand guiding this very exciting transition. As a board member for several years, Michael has been an insightful contributor and supporter of The Jesus Alliance and I’m pleased to report that, now as CEO, he has already assumed control and is working daily to take the ministry to the next level.

What an incredible story of the evil cruelties of abortion and the redemptive power of our Lord Jesus. This young lady had every right to be bitter and angry after surviving attempted murder on her life and Satan almost succeeded in destroying her anyway; however, read what she said: “I didn’t stay angry for long because, truly, there’s just not anything for me to be angry about. I’m alive, I’m well, and I’m blessed.”

Another black day for America went into the books yesterday as Senate Democrats blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during failed abortions. All prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted down the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The final vote was 53-44 to end Democratic delaying tactics – seven votes short of the 60 needed.
The state of New York just voted to expand abortion access right up to the birth of the baby! To celebrate this unbelievable depravity they lit the One World Trade Center in pink! Women used to celebrate motherhood and find joy in their children. Today, in places like New York City, they are taking joy in destroying their children. The state of New York has crossed a line of inhumanity that should drive us to our knees. Forty-six years of the state-sanctioned killing of our most helpless and defenseless children should cause us to weep, to mourn, and to take action. What is to be thought of a society that kills her own children? What will the future be of such a heartless society that celebrates such barbaric inhumanity?
