Healing from Homosexuality

We often feel helpless, in situations. We want guidance. We know we should turn to the Bible; but sometimes we forget. We know we should trust our Savior; but sometimes we get ahead of ourselves – or we get a little too "into" ourselves. This is a common experience for all Christians, myself included.

We are commanded by our Lord and Saviour, Jesus, to love Him – and, to love others. Simple commandments; but, we forget these too. Then, lest we should begin beating ourselves up for perceived failures, we can recognize that we are under grace, thus no longer condemned by Jesus. We let go, we slip back under His yoke...and, we love some more.

This is the Christian life.

In today's perilous times, people find themselves riled up by the forces of darkness and evil around us. We hear something that makes us sad, which leads to a bit of anger, which leads us into a foolish argument – which we are advised, by the apostle Paul, to avoid. Thus, we "engender strife," when we could – simply – love.

Does love mean we agree with everything? God forbid. Does love mean we don't feel when people are hurting themselves? God forbid. God's love is as great as His justice, His recognition of right and wrong.
