Do you feel offended?
“Many of his disciples said, “This is very hard to understand. How can anyone accept it?” Jesus was aware that his disciples were complaining, so he said to them, “Does this offend you?”
John 6:60-61 NLT
We must be clear that the gospel message is not easy to accept and to live.
But for Jesus it will never be negotiable, although we do not like it or bothers us.
Jesus never lowers the standards of His message and His call as long as we’re happy and comfortable.
The price of following Jesus is high, but so is its benefit: eternal life, which can only be given by the Spirit of God.
