Luke 7:23  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me.
These were the Lord’s parting words to the messengers from John the Baptist. They had witnessed many mighty works of power to others; but it was not the Lord’s will to use that power to deliver John from prison. John may have felt forsaken as he faced the executioner but the Lord pronounces a special blessing on those who remain faithful to Him in adversity or loneliness. Do you see others acting in the power of the Lord while your prayers seem to go unanswered? Remember John in prison. There’s a special blessing for those who are not offended in Jesus.
