Many believe a person’s sexual orientation can’t be changed. But most people don’t know the power of God. Jesus Christ can really transform a person. Indeed, “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Cor. 5:17).
Also, some have the belief because of his or her many egregious past sins God can’t forgive. That’s a lie! God can forgive the worst of sinners. The Bible reads “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God can blot out our sins and remember it no more (Isaiah 43:25).
Carlos Catari was involved in the sin of homosexual sex and had multitudes of sexual partners. In the following video, I interviewed Carlos as he shared his testimony of God’s grace and forgiveness and the transformative power of the Holy Spirit when He turned to the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
