“Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?”  Matthew 13:54 NKJV

“Is this not the carpenter’s son?”  Matthew 13:55 NKJV

So they were offended at Him.”  Matthew 13:57 NKJV

Jesus couldn’t be who these folks thought He was.

Thank You, Lord, for transforming us into more than we were yesterday.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I am not who
you thought I was

I couldn’t stay
that way

for I am a child
of the Most High God

and He is making me new
day by day.

God bless all you are in Him today!

Does This Offend You?

“”Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this said, ‘This is a hard saying; who can understand it’?” John 6:60
“When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples murmured about this, He said to them, ‘Does this offend you’?” John 6:61

How can I be offended by the One who died for all my offenses?

Lord, when You speak a harder truth that I don’t understand, I desire to stay humbled before You until I do. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Hard Saying

Eat My flesh
and drink My blood
and you shall abide
in Me.

Your fathers ate manna
and are dead –
eat this Bread
and live.

(from John 6:56, 58)

Astonishingly Offended

“He taught them in their synagogue so that they were astonished and said, ‘Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?'”  Matthew 13:54
“So they were offended at Him.”  Matthew 13:57

The people in Jesus’ home town were both astonished and offended.  They expected Him to be less than He was.

Jesus, please be all You want to be in our lives today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Just Because

With You there is more wisdom
than this world will ever know

because I don’t understand it all
doesn’t mean that it’s not so

and when I’m confused
over something that You’ve said

I’ll simply wait for You to explain it
instead of growing offended.
