Sermons about Sexual Abuse
What if we told our stories? Isolated. Ashamed. Guilty. Confused. Angry. Alone. Those and many other words are how many of us feel, at one time or another, in our lives. For some, "at one time or another" may be right now. Why does this happen? A simplistic answer; a War is raging and our only enemy (Satan) wants us to feel trapped in those ways. This is where the beauty of God's Story comes in. God's Story does not ignore pain and heartache. God's Story looks our fallen world right in the eye and says you will not have the last word. Because of this fact, our broken stories (the sum of our lives to a given point) can find redemption in God's Story. When this happens, our story needs to be shared. So what if we told our stories? There would be a lot less isolation, shame, guilt, confusion, anger, and aloneness. Instead there would be communities (churches) of broken people who realize their God is a God of grace and no “story” is beyond repair. Indeed, many more would acknowledge their need for help and say, “take my broken story and give me a new one”. This new story would be the same in many ways, but with a twist – the twist of redemption and therefore purpose. In this audio you will hear an individual share part of his story which includes being abused sexually as a child. Sexual abuse is far more prevalent than many realize. Yet our God is a God of redemption. May God give us the grace, strength, and compassion to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those impacted by past abuse.
Forgiveness is vital to ourselves, our churches, our society and to our relationship to God.
Can a person sell their soul? Since the soul is the spiritual embodiment of everything that makes a person who they are—it is doubtful. And yet, the soul can be damaged in such a way that it is forever changed. What can accomplish this? Very few things, but sexual abuse is one of them. Sexual abuse damages a soul forever and there is but one way to war against it and find healing. The light must be turned on and the silence broken. Lev 18, 20; 1jn 1:5-7; Jn 3:16-21; 1Tim 5:24; Mt 5:23-26
