Sexual healing

"Healing is always available to us in Christ. If we sincerely repent of our sinful behavior — and to repent means not just to be sorry about it but to turn away from it — God recognizes that, and He washes us. Once you make the decision to change your life, you have to think about where you are going to find fellowship with other people who feel as you do.

"Our sexuality cannot be divorced from who we are in Christ. When we learn about our sexuality in the light of Christ’s teaching, it gives us a great awe and wonder about how, as the Psalm says, we are wonderfully and fearfully made."

— I answer the question of "how can people heal from their sexual pasts" in an interview for Focus on the Family's Many thanks to CitizenLink's associate editor Devon Williams for doing the interview.
