Blessed are the Unoffended
Jesus is always consistent, but never predictable. Even mighty John the Baptizer has a hard time understanding how Jesus’ actions line up with who He is. So John asks. The God of the Bible welcomes—even requires—you to pursue Him: “ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matt. 7:7). But this is not an inquiry to find out if Jesus agrees with you. It’s to figure out if you agree with Him, and adjust accordingly. Blessed are those who are not offended by Him.
