Painful Process - Bait of Satan - Overcoming Offenses

John Bevere Quotes from his book: Bait of Satan                                                                          The man or woman who doesn't forgive has forgotten the price that Christ paid for them on the Cross.”     “Offended people still may experience miracles, words of utterance, strong preaching, and healing in their lives. But these are gifts of the Spirit, not fruits. We will be judged according to fruit, not gifting. A gift is given. Fruit is cultivated.” 

“God is seeking those who hear His call to a life of worship. Those who heed are those who will walk in His presence. They will know Him intimately as He will manifest Himself to them.”

“Trials in this life will expose what is in your heart—whether the offense is toward God or others. Tests either make you bitter toward God and your peers or stronger. If you pass the test, your roots will shoot down deeper, stabilizing you and your future. If you fail, you become offended, which can lead to defilement with bitterness.”

“If we don’t risk being hurt, we cannot give unconditional love. Unconditional love gives others the right to hurt us.”

“Christianity is not a sprint but an endurance run. Therefore it is not how we start the race that counts, but how we complete it. How we finish is determined by the choices we make, and those are often formed by patterns we develop along the way.”

“Physical growth is a function of time. No two-year-old child has ever been six feet tall. Intellectual growth is a function of learning. Spiritual growth is neither a function of time or learning, but it is a function of obedience.”
― John Bevere, Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

Since we have been sharing resources and encouragment on forgiveness, we find that offense is where the bad seed starts toward unforgiveness.
