Maybe you feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body.
You have been struggling with homosexual thoughts and have found some hope in society’s emerging acceptance of gays and lesbians. This hope has not quieted your inner struggle and you are now living a transgendered lifestyle and considering a transgender medical procedure.
I want to share with you a greater hope and a much less costly procedure.
Your flesh is not the real you and changing your flesh does not change the real you. God is the one that made you and He is in love with you. God loves you unconditionally, even if you are transgendered, gay, lesbian or have been cross-dressing.
Jesus wants you to discover your true identity in Him. Male or female is just your earth suit. In fact, God says, “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Gal 3:28. The best procedure you can ever have is becoming a child of God and it is free and lasts forever. Awesomeness!
The good news is, Jesus took your old life and nailed it to the Cross to give you a new life in Him.
Maybe you can find yourself a quiet place and talk to Jesus. You can say, “Jesus, all my life I have been asking, ‘who am I?’, but today I want to know who You are. Jesus, I believe you love me and died on the Cross for everything wrong in my life. Heavenly Father, I want a new life as your child. Today, I give up my past, every struggle, every sin, every hurt, every rejection and every pain for a new life filled with your love. I receive it! Thanks forever Jesus!”
If you prayed and believed from your heart, God says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
You are a new creature and your life is now found in Christ.
You can now go beyond gender and discover a new exciting life in Christ. As you read the Bible, you will discover Jesus is an awesome person and you will like Him. The more you know who Jesus is, the more you will know who you are. God loves you so much that He has made you like Him.
So what about my gender? Discover and experience your true identity in Christ and Jesus will help you sort out your earth suit. Hey, earth suits are temporary, the real you will last forever. God says that homosexuality is not His will for your life and He will strengthen you to overcome through Him. Get into Jesus, get into the Bible, believe God loves you and He has changed you forever. Your old is passed and the new is here.
