It’s tough when our teenagers share things with us that go against what the Bible teaches. It’s especially difficult when a teenager comes out as homosexual and we’re left wondering how to deal with it with love and compassion yet staying true to the Word. Remember, our kids are made in God’s image. Remind them of that and that we love them unconditionally. But speaking God’s truth in love is important too, especially in a world that celebrates this sin. Explain what the Bible says about homosexuality. Help them understand that everyone has an old nature, but the Holy Spirit gives us the power to overcome it. Romans 8 says, the Spirit help us in our weakness, interceding for us. Then, pray the Holy Spirit will do His work.
