Matthew 11:6  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

This verse is the recorded words of the Lord Jesus as He carries out His earthly ministry.  John has been locked up in jail for preaching against sin.  Here in our passage of scripture, John has sent some friends to ask Jesus if He is the one that he has been preaching about.  John’s question shows some doubt that this really is the Messiah.  This spurs the statement Jesus makes in our verse.  Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.  As we look around us today, we see so many whosoevers that are offended in Jesus.  Not only is there an ocean of sinners roaming the unchurched world offended in Him, the church is also spotted with those who are offended in Him.  There are dozens and dozens of religions offered today that are false and are heresies.  These were organized because someone was offended in the gospel of Jesus.  There are even heresies within denominations of truth.  Take the Baptist for example.  Baptist are the only denomination that are not protestants.  All others are birthed from the protest against the Catholic church.  We are Baptist.  Baptist roots go all the way back to the first New Testament Church!  We did not break out of any protestant movement.  We are Baptist!  Yet… there are heresies within the Baptist denomination itself.  If we say we are Baptist, we better be able to clarify what kind of Baptist.  There are many out there who claim to be Baptist but they are offended in Christ.  Anything outside the truth that Jesus Himself taught is derived from someone being offended in Him.  Do you know why so many church members are half timers??  They are offended in Him.  Do you know why so many church members sit through a Spirit filled service like a knot on a log and are untouched?  They are offended in Christ.  Dear friend, the Lord’s Word itself should excite our spirit.  The Lord’s glory should cause us to enter an uncontrollable rush of the celebration of eternal life.  Yet many are so-called Christians in words only.  May I ask, do you know what causes a Christian to be offended in Jesus?  It is pride!  If we really are saved and we are too good to give Him the worship, praise, glory and honor He deserves, it is most likely because we are overtaken by self-pride.  These people here in Matt. 11 are searching for everything wrong with the gospel of Jesus.  Therefore, they are offended.  Why are you offended?  I promise you, if you are offended in Christ, it is rooted in your pride. That pride has put you in a miserable state.  The Lord Jesus Christ gave himself as the supreme sacrifice and shed His blood as the perfect payment for our sin debt.  His finished work on the cross offers us grace and mercy.  Without Him we would be hopelessly lost and bound for Hell judgment.  Oh dear friend, ask the Lord to remove you self indulging pride.  It is that pride that is causing you to miss out on many blessings of the Lord.   Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in the Lord Jesus.  Amen.

2Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

It is so easy for us to build too much confidence in our flesh.  At times we will allow our carnal flesh to claim the power of invincibility.  We stretch ourselves from can to can’t and stand tall saying “I got this”.  But as a child of God there is a voice deep within our soul that says if the Lord slightly lifts His hand from our life that we would fall into a pile of rubble.  Flesh strives to convince us that we are our own god and that our own strength is what is keeping us together.  Dear friend, flesh will mislead us and cause a great fall.  Without the Lord’s guiding, protecting, sovereign hand we are nothing.  It is His power within us that is our only success.  Many times we do not have to wonder what He is blessing.  It will be obvious what His hand is upon.  What He touches is blessed with glory and honor.  What He does not touch will be cracked, busted, weak and soon unusable.  Our verse reminds us that the child of God has a vital strength through the presence of the Lord within our soul.  His Spirit within us is the treasure of this life.  It is His Spirit within us that exposes the power of His glory.  It is His Spirit that is the witness to the world that He is a merciful and gracious God.  There is not a more beautiful picture than a life that was once full of corruption and sin and has been transformed by the light of grace.  To see the power of God now controlling this life is mindboggling.  But how many times have we witnessed one who claims a change but we never see the change?  Yes, we see a human effort to change but soon we see the corruption rise back to control this life.  This is the proof that the Spirit of God is not in this person.  2Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. My friend, the Holy Ghost is a power within that cannot be denied.  But many times we do temporarily allow the flesh to try and claim control.  It is these times we wind up on our face as a shattered vessel.  Only the power of the Holy Ghost can keep us together.  We are His vessel.  Let’s strive to be a vessel of honor that we may make Him look like the glorious God He is.  Amen.

Psalm 119:165  Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Peace is a personal treasure that no words can efficiently explain.  Peace offers complete contentment and calm.  Peace relieves from tenseness and anxiousness.  It is peace that provides the opportunity of rest for the body, mind and spirit.  Our verse reminds us of an avenue that offers this peace for the child of God.  And yes, it is for the child of God.  The unsaved person cannot fully connect with the Word of God; therefore it is impossible for them to receive this wonderful peace that the Word offers.  The Bible is a living book.  It is the Lord in word form, so to speak.  It is the breath of God uttering direction and guidance for His children.  His Word offers peace for the conscience.  The conscience is purified through the filtration of the Word.  A pure conscience is flooded with unspeakable joy.  Notice our text mentions that this peace is available to those who love His Word.  It does not say it is available to those who just have a copy of the Word or to those that just read the Word.  It does not even say this peace is given to those who simply sit under the teaching and preaching of the Word.  Our verse clearly states that this peace is available to those who love the Word of God.  This action word “love” means to have great affection through relationship.  A relationship is something that has to be acquired over time.  It is something that becomes a stronghold to the heart.  It is a love that connects hearts.  It is a bond not easily broken.  Yet there is one thing that will shake the bond of a relationship.  Whether it is the relationship between spouses or friends, this one poison can cause distance between the two.  This one thing is sin.  Sin can cause great detriment to a loving relationship.  It is the same with our love for the Word.  It is sin that causes distance between us and the Word of God.  It is sin that pulls us away from that joy and peace that the Word offers.  Beware dear friend.  Sin hangs around hoping to lure us away through its seduction.  Sin presents itself with outer beauty, but on the inside is evil and wicked destruction.  We must keep our relationship with the Word near and dear.  Spend time with the Word.  Refuse to let sin come between you and the Word.  Notice that those who love the Word will not experience offense.  Offense is when something has tripped us and caused us to sway from the way.  Those who love the law of God, no…thing shall offend them.  If we find ourselves always in a conflict or drama disturbance, it may be because we have allowed sin to separate us from our love of the law.  Amen.

John 6:61  When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

Our verse for today is a bold and plain-speaking verse that can be repeated in many churches today.  It can even be applied to the lives of many lives of the religious.  In this passage Jesus has just finished preaching a strong sermon to the multitude of people that, up to this point, followed Him faithfully.  Even though many have only followed to fill their belly, nevertheless they have followed.  Jesus preaches a message that displays the finished work of Calvary.  He uses an illustration of His body being the bread of life that will be delivered upon the cross.  He gives illustration of His blood being the everlasting drink of life eternal.  He is speaking spiritual, but most of the crowd takes it literal and physical.  My friend, the preached Word is spiritual and must be interpreted spiritual.  When people do not have the ability to interpret the Word through the Spirit, they become offended.  Here in this particular instance, a great multitude of people were offended at the preaching of truth and actually deserted Jesus.  They left the service.  They left and never returned.  Why?  Because they could not take the preaching.  If the preaching had of been declared true heresy then leaving would have been understandable.  But this preaching was not only delivered by the Lord Himself, it was the sovereign truth of God.  And they left.  My friend, I am afraid we live in such days as this even today.  Few followers can digest hard preaching of truth.  Much of society is so influenced by the rights of the people and by the liberals of our time that preaching offends them.  Few people can swallow the pill of correction.  We must have daily correction from the Word in order to continue in this battle against the flesh.  Preaching is a must if we wish for our children and grandchildren to continue in the heritage of Christianity.  1Cor. 1:18  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  Hard preaching of the truth is a must for survival.  We need the Word displayed in its purist and boldest form.  One thing for sure, we can plan on the crowd being meager under real preaching.  If you will follow the journey of Jesus’ earthly ministry recorded in the scripture, you will soon find that every time Jesus beefed up the preaching, the crowd thinned out.  Here in our passage we see that the majority left.  Only a few sold out, born again believers stayed with the truth.  My friend, determine to stay with true preaching.  The Lord warned us that the time would come when people would seek weak preaching and liberal teaching.  He warned us not to fall to liberalism, but to stay with the truth and follow the fundamentals of the paths of righteousness.  Preach preachers, preach!  Amen.

2Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.

The first few verses of 2Peter contain some very vital information for the seasoned Christian.  As we grow and mature in grace we have to be reminded on a regular basis who we are and whose we are.  Living in and among this world we are altered mentally little by little each day by the sinful influences of the world.  The only antidote for purging is the Word of God.  If we only read the Word and neglect actually studying the Word then the world and worldly ways will build up in us.  Little by little we will become worldly.  My friend, just being titled a Christian and going to church is not enough.  We must be purged by the Word daily.  What I mean by purged is the conviction that corrects us as the wisdom of the Word enters us.  The Word of God is alive.  It is Jesus in word form, John 1.  As we study the Word it enters us through the Holy Ghost.  If we are saved the Word communes with the same Spirit that lives within us.  1Timothy 4:15  Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.  Dear friend do not neglect studying the Word.  Amen. 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
