2 cor 4 16 17“That is why we never give up. Our physical body is becoming older and weaker, but our spirit inside us is made new every day. We have small troubles for a while now, but these troubles are helping us gain an eternal glory. That eternal glory is much greater than our troubles. So we think about what we cannot see, not what we see. What we see lasts only a short time, and what we cannot see will last forever.”

– 2 Corinthians 4:16 – 18 (ERV)

In an earlier post, I defined the term “managing one’s same-sex attractions” as follows:

“. . . although we may experience or contend with homosexual attractions, we can identify ourselves in ways that are in keeping with traditional Christian beliefs and values. We can take steps to structure and live our lives in the context of vocation, stewardship and Christlikeness. I believe God wants us to know that it is okay to struggle. He will help and advocate for us. He will still love us and accept us. . .”

The videos below are longer than the previous videos in this series (2.5 to 4.5 minutes each). To make them easier to follow, I added a smooth jazz track to each one. You may want to adjust your volume accordingly.
