Christian “Mom” Blogger dating a woman

It’s such a shame that the media always focus in on the negative and not the positive.  Like today I’ve woken up to press stories on facebook about a Christian “Mom” Blogger who has now divorced her husband and is dating another woman.  Can you imagine the same headline for a Gay Blogger who found Christ, I don’t think so!

In Mark 11 we read the story of the fig tree, a tree full of leaves and show but bearing no fruit.  We need to be wary of “Christians” who are like this.  We need to be wary of those who label themselves “Christian” as a form of religious belief but who have no personal relationship with God.  I was reminded only yesterday of the need to focus on God alone.  If the devil taunts or tempts look him straight in the eye, that is do not be afraid of him, do not give in to him and walk away from the temptations.

It appears that in this particular case the Blogger was already advocating behaviours outside of God’s teaching and that is the start of the slippery slope.  If we are grounded in God, grounded in his word whatever Satan says to us we can rebuke.  Jesus himself used scripture when tempted in the wilderness, how much more should we use it in these dark days.

If you read about this Blogger and are tempted to do the same, seeing it as acceptable or desirable I urge you to think again.  Satan will use many tactics to kill, steal, destroy, he is the great deceiver, do not fall into his web.  God is very clear in the Bible about homosexual behaviour; celibacy may not be the easiest path to follow but it certainly will be the most rewarding.

Praying that this Mom will feel God’s love surround her and that her eyes will be opened to God’s word and desires for her life.

But they will reply, ‘It’s no use

I was reading Jeremiah 18 yesterday and just felt God saying that we need to need to stop going round in circles and making the same mistakes over and over again.

Jeremiah 18:11- 12 – Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘This is what the LORD says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.’ But they will reply, ‘It’s no use. We will continue with our own plans; we will all follow the stubbornness of our evil hearts.

God’s word is exactly that, his word.  His word encourages us, instructs us and builds us up and before we can walk closely with him we need to give up on our own stubborn ways.  Perhaps today is a good day to start looking at our own lives to see what we continue to cling on to even though it is not in God’s plan for our lives.  What do we need to confess to God and turn from??
