Does This Offend You – Mark Dunn

 

 

 

John 6:60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?”  61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. NKJV

Truth can be offensive.  We see this illustrated in the account of Jesus in John chapter 6.  As believers we are called to submit ourselves to the Lord and follow in faith, at times this means the Lord may say something to us that we don’t fully understand at the moment.  We are in a safe place though when we recall God’s character and faithfulness over the years.  We can trust our God.
