Perhaps you know this in your mind, but actually believing it in your heart is a different story. John, Shay, and Austin set out to help close this gap between your head and your heart.
They discuss the following 3 important biblical truths that you need to remember:
1. God's heart is for the sexually broken.
2. The gospel says that you are simultaneously far more broken than you know, and yet far more loved than you can imagine. This powerful truth redeems, restores, and reminds us of our God-given dignity and value.
3. The promise of Romans 8:38-39 - Nothing can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
They also discuss 3 practical ways to “clear the runway” of your life in order for those biblical truths to land:
First, learn the relational equation: honesty + vulnerability = connection.
Second, prepare for a marathon, not a 100 yard dash.
Third, your actions may have painful consequences but God's enduring love for you remains unchanged.
Our hope is that after listening you will be able to believe, even just a little bit more, that sexual brokenness does NOT disqualify you from God’s love.
