During the ministry of Jesus we sometimes hear him asking what might seem like an odd question before he heals a person. We hear him ask questions like….Do you want to get well? Do you believe I can heal you? What do you want me to do for you? These questions can sometimes frustrate us….of course we want to we well Jesus. But what we discover is not a test of our faith but rather an invitation from Jesus to a person who is hurting….the question is in your situation who am I to you. Your healer? Your Saviour? Jesus invites us to go deep in our relationship with him and to see that in Christ, our connection with God intact, we have access to all we need. Are we willing to invest in our relationship with Christ? Are we willing to stay connected to where are help comes from?
At Melbourne Inclusive Church we do not believe that our same sex attraction or gender diversity is a sin but rather a beautiful expression of the diversity of God. But we all sin and we need a Saviour. This good news is for everyone so regardless of your view we should agree on this one thing…we are not saved by the law-we are saved through faith in Jesus Christ. This debate was finished at Calvary.
