Are You Offended?

Given September 4, 2005
We've been watching this great DVD series on Wednesdays at church by John Bevere called, "The Bait Of Satan". The bait is offense and we've been looking at many ways the devil uses offense against us. The study has been great!

On this night, I got the image of Satan using someone to do something that offended me. This person did his thing and the devil stood by watching with glee expecting me to react as usual. But instead of getting mad and striking back or talking about 'em...I blessed them! "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" Matthew 5:44 Hey, that's what Jesus told us to do.

When I did this, the devil didn't know what to do next. He said, "Hey, wait a minute! That's not what is supposed to happen! That's not what you're supposed to do!" Then he got mad and left. It reminded me that I'm supposed to act like Jesus and not be offended. With His help, I'm making it!
