Looking Beyond Offence

“…Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me…” © Matthew 11:4-6, KJV, italics and emphasis mine

A story is told of gospel workers who went to Mauritius upon God’s word having no arrangement for accommodation and not knowing who their host will be…to their surprise they were met at the airport by a drunken man who said God sent him to meet them and host them in his large estate for the entire time they will be in the island free of charge. How eccentric of God.

God uses all sorts of people to serve and save His people, you get short, tall, thin, not so thin, loud mouth, fashion-challenged, proud ones, humble ones. God may choose to use an instrument that you may not particularly like, you will have to learn to look beyond the offence if you are to receive from God…remember, If He can use a donkey (Nu 22), He can use anything or anyone.
