DAY THREE: Offense
Scripture: Matthew 24:9-10, Matthew 24:11:16 & Hebrews 12:15
Many great men and women of God have short-circuited the calling of God on their lives due to offense. Jesus warns us of tribulations, difficulties and hardships. He says “many will be offended” in light of these things. When we entertain offense and allow it to be nursed in our hearts, roots of bitterness develop.
If we are not taught as Christians to understand the reality of persecution and tribulation, we could become easily offended at God when we encounter difficulty because of the faith. We must become true witnesses who do not flinch or quit in the face of difficulty and persecution. We must hold fast to the faith we profess and not allow anybody to offend us and make us relinquish our destiny.
