Recently I have been doing a significant amount of studying concerning God, His Word and sexuality. All of this studying has lead me through several books, at least a dozen articles and many stories of real-life people fighting battles – some they win and some they don’t. Through my studies I have found these stories to be incredibly compelling and even very familiar. Here’s what I mean: my particular sin struggles haven’t been the same, however I can totally identify with struggling with things that control and begin to gradually disintegrate our lives.
One of the stories that I came across was in this article and I would highly recommend it. It will probably offend you no matter where you stand on this discussion, however it is a story of grace and because of that, I love it! While the whole article was beneficial, this particular portion stood out to me:
My desire to be made straight was all about me. I had no interest in being reconciled to God or having a relationship with Christ.
Which brings me to by second point. From what I see in the Bible, God is far more concerned with first fixing our hearts than he is with fixing other things in our lives.
