God's Sexual Design for our Lives

#1 A Special Design: Sexuality (continued)

Life applications

Sexual changes
Those who seek physical sex changes are not only confused but rebelling against God's very purpose for their lives. Man does make mistakes but our given sex has been chosen by God. We are sorry for any shame or ridicule that has so aggravated and confused these people that they would go and make these changes. We are horrified that doctors who are called to help people would further these people's confusion by making physical changes. They make it further difficult to restore these people to God's good design for their lives.
Cross-sex Imitation
Those who dress up and act like those of the other sex are crossing lines of design. The clothe and role changes become confusion rather than affirmation of God's call for our lives. Sometimes their intention is but playful, but we note that some have followed this course so far that they believe they are both sexes at once. God foresaw the danger of this and therefore warned His people on how much He hated them wearing clothes of the opposite sex.
"A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God." Deuteronomy 22:5

Solutions come through both a mind and heart change.
1) Even while single, we are either male or female. Our sexual persons go far beyond the sexual function. We need to be grateful for how God has made us and not change this. We might face particular dangers, opportunities, functions, physiological changes and roles because of our sex, but our sexual nature is God-designed, and we must not tamper with it.

2) We know our sex. Now we need to affirm our sexual persons and roles no matter how odd it feels. Different roles require different responsibilities. We need to be faithful to these responsibilities. As we learn to fulfill those roles, it will be easier to accept oneself and see how one fits into life itself. Finding a strong mentor in the areas of need would be very helpful.

3) In our heart, we need to like what God likes and hate what God hates. We need to acknowledge the wrongs we have done before God. Take out your sheet listing the wrongs you have done and add any that come before your mind. Ask for forgiveness for each one. Focus on your own shortcomings and not those around you. God will ask you to change what you read, think and do in some cases.

Many perhaps who struggle with these kind of issues need to know more of the love of God. It is very difficult to change what one has been accustomed to doing. For example, you might have found your niche in life through acting like someone from the opposite sex. This feels like the true you. In order for conviction and real behavioral changes to occur, a deeper knowledge of God's holiness, love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ is crucial. Christ's life is about bringing peace between us who have angered God and God Himself. When our sin is dealt with properly through Christ, then we find that we no longer need to fight with God about the way He has made us.
