At a Christian university I attended, I was blessed in class during the devotional time one day to hear the testimony of a fellow student who left the homosexual lifestyle by the grace of God. His most powerful remarks challenged the politically correct notion that no one should question the love that same-sex couples may have for each other. You could’ve heard a pin drop as he read God’s definition of love in I Corinthians 13:
4) Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5) does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6) does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8a) Love never fails.
He closed stating emphatically that there is NOTHING resembling true love—God’s definition of love—in the homosexual lifestyle!
And he’s right. Praise God for that testimony! But I’ll preach a step further because in our sex-crazed culture many heterosexual relationships have no idea what true, Biblical, sacrificial love is either. That’s partly why so many families are falling apart. The world needs love; God’s love. And God is calling His people to take a stand and take back and redeem the secular definitions of love, marriage and family for His glory!
