Just because I love the homosexual man or woman, does not mean I will support gay marriage. Though it may hurt your feelings, the wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive.
If I truly believe all those who refuse to repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will go to hell when they die, how can I be loving if I do not share the truth with them? Everyone has fallen short of God’s holy perfection. None of us are good enough for heaven. I’m not good enough, it’s Christ who was good enough and He deserves all the credit.
Sin is sin. Whether you’re heterosexual or homosexual, what the Word of God calls sin is sin. Lying, adultery, murderer, blasphemy, fornication. Before I surrendered my life to the good and loving lordship of Christ, I practiced sexual sin, lying, envy, hatred, drunkenness, violence, sorcery. I was on the road to hell too!
But thank God the Father in His exceedingly great mercy, He made a way to redeem ALL of us: through the death and resurrection of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
I, as a Christian, am here to share with you the good news of Jesus Christ, as He commands me to do. Out of love, I share with you the wonderful gift of Christ’s love for all mankind that He took every one of our sins to that cross on Calvary two thousand years ago, and bled and died for them, shamefully bare before many as they mocked and spat upon Him. He did this for me, He did this for you, He did this for your neighbor, for my mom, your sibling, the whole world! Then He conquered death to prove to us all that He truly can give us forgiveness and eternal life—access to heaven.
But not only does Jesus give us the keys to heaven, He gives us His very own Holy Spirit to live in our hearts and transform us. He gives us the power to obey Him and live righteously in His sight that we might endure temptation and make it to His heavenly kingdom, and live a life of freedom from sin and addiction, an abundant life full of joy and peace even in the midst of this dark world, as we await His return.
That’s how much He loves us! Dying and then rising from the dead wasn’t enough in His eyes. He had to give us His own power to ensure we would be fit to live in His presence for all eternity, where the bible says God Himself will wipe away every tear from our eyes, where there will be no more pain, and only joy, peace and true love.
I pray this is the destiny you embrace. I pray you let go of whatever you’re living for now if it’s not Jesus and give Him your whole heart instead. I promise He won’t break it. He came to heal, not just physical illness, but emotional and mental as well. He desires to give you a future and a hope. He created you in your mother’s womb. His plans for you are good, pleasing, acceptable and perfect. He knows what He created you for. He holds the answers to your purpose and calling in life. He loves you, He loves you, He loves you. His Son’s sacrifice on the cross proved it.
