John16. “Offended?” May 6,2018, 11am

John 16:1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

Scouts, not boy and girl scouts, sex education now includes man to man woman to woman. I saw it coming many years ago, but, I, am surprised, that the unisex agenda, has been so successful. Yes, I am offended, but Jesus wants, us to stand strong, in our faith.

Atheists, who would not have dared, 50 years ago, to try to eliminate Christianity, but while, most of the media, is antichristian, they, are striving hard, against Christianity.

Many churches have strayed from the truth, afraid to preach the gospel, that they will offend someone.

Sadly we see what Jesus did, As Jesus said on the cross, father forgive them for they know not what they do.

Jesus, explained to us, the horrible things, people will do, against us and GOD. Even so, we are commanded, by Jesus to not let it, affect our faith and our Christian way of life. Jesus said, in his sermon on the mount, that if they offend us, rejoice, for joy and rewards are coming our way.
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

If we stand strong in our faith, we have a wonderful time coming. Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

A. Offended? Should Not cause us to change our Values or faith. 1-6
B. The Holy Spirit of truth must come to guide us in the truth.7-15
C. That deep sorrow that will bring greater joy.16-21
D. Until we meet again, remember I have overcome the world. 22-31.
May GOD through his son Jesus our savior, bless you with his grace and peace multiplied.
