Tradition has kept us from being "Naked" before all that need to hear and read the truth. Freedom does not come without a price whether it being a lost marriage or losing members of the body who could not stand with you during your struggles. The Word of God is teaching me that we are his light, but without struggle our light will never "Shine" nor can we Minister without life experience. It does not matter whether you struggled with sexual sins or being trapped and tripped up by the enemy with various obstacles, but the beauty of it all is that Christ has set you free and we no longer have to live in Sin (Gal 5&1). We can now live in freedom and tell the World that I was a "Struggler" in Sin, but now I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. Today, I am FREE from various strongholds that had me bound in same sex attractions and the Occult.
My Question for discussion is if we are truly living Free why hide behind our pasts? 1st Corinthians 6 &11 "And Such were some of you: But ye are washed but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
If God has accepted our change why should we be ashamed to "Testify" of his mercy in our lives so folk can get free. People are sitting in our churches sunday after sunday "Dying" on the inside because they cannot disclose their struggles to their leaders so we can trevail for them. If we are preaching and teaching Freedom it's time to "WALK IT", LIVE IT and SPEAK IT to all that are bound and desire to be set FREE!!!.
