#pressonblog: LBTQ is for Jesus!
If you are offended, I was too. But I fell in love with Jesus. I did not change myself. He changed me and God is not finished with me yet and also with you. No one told me to change, no pastor, or bible study leader confronted me that I needed to change. Instead I was taught that I needed a Savior, He is Jesus. Scriptures hurt me, but I endured all that, my heart was broken so many times when I was in sin, I can do it. I told myself I will stay and sit here (at church) and I will not go until I found the truth.
I was seeking for “my own” understanding of truth, I believe in sexual fluidity, “love without gender”, they said marriage is between man and a woman I don’t believe that. It was “not written” that man could not love man, woman cannot love a woman.
That’s the point, “it is not written” what you should believe is “what is written”.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (Huwag kang sisiping sa lalaki na gaya ng pagsiping mo sa babae: ito ay karumaldumal)
The “truth has set me free” the truth is not what I feel, or hear, or smell, or see… The truth is what God says.
My God is the God of Abraham, the God of Israel, the God of Moses, the God of Joshua, the God of the Bible. The truth is what is written in the bible, the truth is not what I feel, hear, smell, or see.
“The Truth Shall Make You Free
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
I was hurt by the scriptures I was cut, it was hard for me to accept it, to believe it. But after the pain heals, you will not find any trace of wound or scar after going through that pain. I was healed, I was set free like nothing happened and all that was left was the abounding love of Jesus in the inside of me, to live and pursue holiness.
I realized, yes, I needed Jesus and I want all Him, to become not only my Savior but also my Lord. I want what Jesus wants, to do what Jesus do, and go where God wants me to go. Coming to church did not change my situation. Hearing the word does so I attend Christian church to listen, to learn. I did not just learn but I experience the demonstration of the power of God.
Seek God for the truth and ask an encounter with God. Don’t worship the cross, because Jesus is alive, He rose from the dead, He defeated death. Worship God.
Maybe you are offended. I was too and I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’ve been there and I know how it feels, I know what it’s like. But I want you to know that God loves you. God loves the sinner, Jesus came for the sinners. Jesus came to defeat sin because He knew you cannot do it alone, you needed Him. He is a perfect Gentleman and will not insist Himself to you. God has given us the free will to choose between life and death. God wants us to choose life, too choose Him. God has been waiting for you to notice Him. His arms had been long open to welcome you. You are loved remember that.
Now, if you want to ask God to come in to your life, say this, speak:
“God I’m sorry, I admit that I sinned, I ask you Jesus to come inside my heart and save me, be my Lord and Savior. Help me to understand and accept things that I can’t. Thank you God, I believe I am forgiven and I am saved. Help me to start and walk this new life I have in Christ. Amen.”
If you said that prayer, comment amen below feel free to send me a message. I believed God called me not just in the campus, prison, children, mountains, but to also the LBTQ community.
God bless you!
