Finding Your Identity in Christ

FamilyLife Today® - 7/4/2019 12:00:00 AM

To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/84/29 Author Jackie Hill Perry, a wife and mother of two, talks about her former life as a practicing homosexual. Perry reminds us that homosexuality is a verb, not a noun, and that ultimately we are all sinners saved by grace, each bearing the image of a living God. The devil and the flesh will tell you that because you are tempted you aren't a believer, but even Jesus was tempted. The question isn't why you're tempted, but when. We have to be honest about our sin, and bring it into the light. Perry advises parents on what to do if their child is gay.
