Life Lessons from "Victorious Living" (a Christian struggles with homosexuality
All Too Common ^ | 8/06/2005 | The Common Anglican

The blog, Victorious Living, is of a man who came to Christ and is fighting the sin of acting on homosexual desires. He spills his guts to profess the changing power of Christ. His latest post is one of a confession of his continual dependance on God and expressing his repentant heart. I was especially moved when he wrote:

Now, those of you reading this who know Jesus will see right away that I was heading for a lesson. I slowly began to cease from my abiding in Jesus. No time for bible study, no time for prayer, no time for my accountability partners, no time for God. I had it figured out and I had won. What a fool! I began to notice a stirring in my mind for the old ways...Oh how quickly I found myself in the mud once again.
But Jesus is good, and his Spirit is quick to rescue. He has showed me, once again, that all I have and I have become is from him alone, and not of my own doing. (Life Lessons, Victorious Living)

Please visit this site and leave him some encouraging thoughts and prayers and let him know that he is not alone in his struggle with sin. Sin affects us all and all of us struggle with different sins to one degree or another. May we all be like him in being able to readily admit our sins and confess them to God and repent openly and freely, depending fully on His grace to save us! May the love and forgiveness of our Lord Jesus Christ be upon us all. Amen.

A brother in Christ sharing how he stays on the straight and narrow. No matter ~what~ besetting sin each struggles with, Jesus does give a way of escape, He does free our soul, like a bird, out of the snare of the fowler.

Thanks, sionnsar.
