I’m giving my testimony next Sunday and I suppose it’s true to say that for a brief while I allowed the enemy to get into my head, “be careful, you don’t want to upset or offend anyone”. Speaking to a trusted friend she quickly corrected that lie and sent me an article on strongholds. Oh yes, Satan you are not going to shut me up, I am going to speak and I am going to speak from my overflow, from my passion, and I am going to share my story for the Glory of God. The Lord is building his church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. If I offend through speaking God’s truth, so be it, but my prayer is that through speaking the truth I will help others to see God’s amazing grace and love and how they too can receive this for themselves.
Unfortunately there are still people in the church who don’t see homosexuality as a sin, in fact some see those who speak out about it as homophobic. But I see it as speaking God’s truth and giving others an opportunity to see that by his Grace and his Grace alone we can be changed, we can overcome even the biggest obstacles in life to walk with him in obedience.
Matthew 16:18 – And I tell you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
