Followers of Christ are representatives of their savior to the rest of the world. Their actions and words are on display, to be seen and tested by others. If this is the case, what does a Christian’s offense and anger say about Jesus? Becoming offended inherently puts one on the defense, often aggressively. Will anger or aggressiveness invite others into a relationship with Jesus? If the answer is no, a Christian’s life should reflect this.
Questions for further thought:
1. What has anger accomplished in your life?
2. Why is offense such a common response presently?
Challenge: The next time you feel angry or offended, pause, and consider how your response will reflect on your relationship with Jesus.
