God wants men and women who are involved in homosexuality or experience same-sex attractions to be part of His family, to be members of His kingdom.
John the Apostle wrote "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." (John 1:14) Those few words capture the power, majesty, love and grace of Almighty God. The Great Creator came down to Man's level to experience fatigue (John 4:6), the need for sleep (Matthew 8:4), food (Matthew 4:2 and 21:18), and water (John 19:28). More importantly He came to our level to experience the deceitful draw of temptation and yet to resist--"Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted." (Heb 2:18)
What does the incarnation mean for men and women who are involved in homosexuality or who experience same-sex attractions? "God always initiates the search and rescue." God left the splendor of Heaven for the stench of a stable. He surrendered His throne for a cold feeding trough. The omnipotent Creator became a helpless infant who had to depend totally on a biological mother and an adoptive father. He did these things so that He can find men and women who are involved in homosexuality.
God does not wait for you to clean up your life before God will meet you at your point of need. Jesus illustrated this beautifully in His parable of the prodigal son. After the prodigal son had wasted his inheritance on materialism (including immorality), he returns to his father. The only time in sacred scripture when God is pictured in a hurry is in Luke 15:20. The father, who represents God, runs to the son! Genisis also records that after Adam and Eve's sin in the Garden of Eden and while they hid from God, God initiated a search for them. Genesis 3:9 reads "But the LORD God called to the man, 'Where are you?'" God does not wait for you to clean up your life.
God does not overlook our faults or our struggles with sexuality; rather He looks through them, knowing that our deepest need is for a vital relationship with Him. He also knows that "apart from Him we can do nothing." When the Holy Spirit begins to take residence in a your life, just as with any other person's life, He transforms and empowers you to live in agreement with His Word.
