Hope for Homosexuals

Homosexuality is something that seems to have become more popular in America. Although the Bible clearly describes this lifestyle as sinful, many people are caught in its grasp. In fact, some of these people recognize that it is wrong and want to leave it but cannot. What can be done to help them?

While searching for something entirely different, I came across the testimony of a former homosexual. You can access it here. After reading the article, I was impressed with the need to pray for and to try to help anyone involved in this way.

If you are struggling with this sinful lifestyle, there is hope for you in the Lord Jesus Christ. As a man Jesus faced the same temptations we do (1 Cor. 10:13). As God, he was able to pay the infinite cost for the sins of all people (1 Pet. 2:24). If you are looking for forgiveness and a way to escape your sin, you need look no further. Through Jesus you can be forgiven by God the Father and begin a new life which is better than anything you have had in the past (John 10:10).

As God works in your heart about this matter, you need to recognize your lifestyle for what it is—a sin against God. That is a very serious statement but one which is very clear in the Scriptures. Read Romans 1:16-32 for more information. After you have recognized your sin, God wants you to repent of it and believe in Jesus as your Savior (Acts 20:20-21). If you are convinced of your need, why not talk to God about it now?
