@jill.sanders.447. I think what is most telling is that your heart is convicted to offer a legitimate response. But I also believe there is not a generic or universal manner in which we should respond. I have found that if I consult the Lord for ongoing guidance in how I conduct myself He has been faithful.
That always begins with my acknowledgment of what an individual means to the heart of GOD. And what He wants me to say. The principle thing is conveying the value GOD continues to hold regarding that person, not the acceptance of their sin, but how mercy interacts with us when we have failed GOD.
I have found my willingness to love and support them despite the sin provides the avenue for us, together, to exam the detriment of their sins. Unlike many popular convictions, I have never felt to negate the impact of sin on our living. Sin is cancerous and impactful. Leading us down paths that GOD never intended for us to walk.
Repentance is a corrective force on these paths of wanderlust. But forgiveness only occurs when repentance is as deliberate as the sin committed. How and when to address that issue is timed by GOD. It is never meant to destroy us, just restore us.
I would ask the Lord to lead me into ways I can support her or them. Then I would embrace that leading with all my being. It establishes a relationship that will allow the topic of sexual sin to arise on its own. These young women need someone to love them while telling and living out the truth of GOD.
