The ONE THING for today

Don’t be offensive…if you can help it

There’s probably an exception out there somewhere, but I can’t think of one example where being intentionally rude for rudeness sake is the best way to act.

However, if telling people about the love of God offends them…

If telling them about the many benefits of obeying God’s commandments offends them…

If telling them that Jesus died on the Cross for them offends them…

If telling them the only way to salvation and ever-lasting life offends them…

And yes, if telling them how to escape a burning house (hell) offends them…

Then so be it; that is why we are here…

Not to offend, but to announce the good news (gospel)…

And unfortunately, that often offends people.

  • The ONE THING for today: Existing to win people to Jesus Christ often offends the very people we are trying to help…help them anyway.


Galatians 5:11 (NLT)

11 Dear brothers and sisters, if I were still preaching that you must be circumcised—as some say I do—why am I still being persecuted? If I were no longer preaching salvation through the cross of Christ, no one would be offended.
