When Your Ministry is Purposely Offensive

Jesus didn’t teach in parables to make things clear. He taught truth in parables to push hard hearts farther away, in order to make room for humble hearts to come closer.

See Matthew 13:10-16

If God can’t use you as an Example of Obedience, He will use you as an Example of Disobedience.

See Jeremiah 18:4-10

Sometimes, for His own reasons, God will make your ministry purposefully offensive. As you see men’s hearts hardening at His Word, be sure to also look for the hearts that are softening to His Word.
