The Bible teaches that God not only takes care of our past, He transforms our present and assures our future. Scripture clearly shows us that at the Cross God smashed the iron doors which Satan had used to imprison us. Therefore, God Himself literally entered our dark cell of any and all forms of brokenness, held out His Hand to us and encouraged and extended a walk with Him into freedom and change.
Those who suppose that Jesus only lived and died and rose again in order to provide forgiveness of sins for His people, are making Him only half a Savior.
C.H. Spurgeon once said, “the fact is, that believers are in a state of conflict, but not in a state of condemnation; and that at the very time when the conflict is the hottest, the believer is still justified.”
In life, in death, in time, in eternity, there is no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
Generally speaking, the Church has not been there for the man or woman seeking a way out of the brokenness of same-sex attraction. Without hearing a message of love, encouragement and support from the Church and/or a testimony from someone who has been there and has been changed, the person attempting change on their own will usually give up, thinking it is impossible like “they say.”
At His Way Out Ministries, we remain purposed and dedicated to bring the message that it is not helpful to the person struggling with same-sex attraction to either endorse his sin or reject him as a person, rather, the Church must provide the new way and the new lifestyle that will replace and push out the old sinful patterns of life.
This is Biblical discipleship with regard to “change” and requires that a person learn new ways of thinking and acting, and new responses to old temptations.
The power to change is not in knowledge of works, the power is all in our relationship with God.
“But seek first His Kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)
I would submit that each man and each woman is not fighting for future victory, but to embrace more fully Christ’s accomplished victory already won for them at the Cross.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that You have already smashed the power of homosexuality at the Cross!
