How would you answer this question? Which group is the smallest, most rejected minority in our country?
African-Americans have certainly suffered terribly through our history…Perhaps it is Native Americans?…What about the LGBT community?…
Ironically, the group that can lay claim to being the smallest and most rejected minority in America today once was part of the LGBT community. They once identified as gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender, but they no longer do. Today, they are “ex-gay” or “ex-trans.”
Their numbers are very small, since they came out of a small community to start with. And it is only a small percentage of that small group who make a break with the rest of the LGBT community.
Most of them make that break because of their religious faith, often newly found.

My prayer today:
Lord, help us not despise the day of small beginnings in seeing people delivered from LGBT lifestyles, but help us to increase our faith and efforts, knowing that You came to set the captives free and destroy the works of the Devil. (Based on Zechariah 4:10, Luke 4:10 and 1 John 3:8)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
