I was just reading something at my job about transgender veterans, and something dropped into my spirit: How do we minister to this growing population effectively about the Gospel of Jesus Christ? To some, it would seem to be such an easy task, but if the truth be told, it really is not.
There are so many dynamics involved with this controversial subject. If we are not careful, as believers and ambassadors of Christ, we can alienate this group of people and risk losing them to the enemy. While we may not agree with certain decisions the individual has made, we must exercise Godly wisdom in our approach to ministering to them.
Why? Because they still have a soul. Regardless of what personal opinions we may have about them, God still loves them as much as He loves us. While sharing the truth of the Gospel with them, we must also live the Gospel out loud as well.
I am still troubled within my spirit about this concern (not afraid, but troubled), but I am certain that God will provide the answers when the time is right…
