Not Offended

The Bible contains the greatest love story ever written. Nothing in literature can compare with the Bible because it was given by inspiration of God. All that we know about the love of God is contained in the Bible.

People who love God love the Bible. It is impossible to hate the Word of God and love the Author. Your love for the Lord can be measured by your attitude toward the Bible.

Exposure to the Bible in a devotional sense changes lives. The Bible has power to give daily victory over temptation. Many have despaired of ever conquering some besetting sin. Following David’s formula in Psalm 119:9-11 would have solved the problem and ended constant defeat: “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. “

One of the great benefits of loving God’s Word is in experiencing its power to deliver us from super sensitivity. Those who love the Bible will stop carrying their feelings on their sleeves. It is impossible to love the Bible, read it regularly and take it into life, without overcoming the sensitivity syndrome.

Christians do not have the right to be offended. We are not allowed to get our feelings hurt over trifles. Supersensitive saints are missing something in their walk with God. They need to fall in love with the Bible and its message so that feelings are subject to God’s Word and will.

If this truth offends you, better hurry back to the Bible for help!
