Luke 7 – Doing godly deeds / May offend some

In Luke 7:13-23 Jesus does the Godly deeds that the Old Testament predicted Messiah would do. However some people, especially the religious leaders take offense. They want others to think that they are the most direct link to God. Jesus does Messianic signs that show that He, a lowly person by material measures, is a much closer link to God. In fact He is the ultimate link to God.

We should do godly deeds

When we do godly deeds today some may take offense. Here are some possible reasons. They feel guilty because they are not the ones doing it. They despise the person to whom you minister and therefore despise you. To name just two.

Do not be surprised when this happens to you. If it happened to Jesus then it can happen to you. See John 15:18-21.

Here is a truth

Doing godly deeds
May offend some

    How true this is as I’ve encountered opposition from others and I can’t figure out why oppose my actions. I am doing my best to uphold the word of God. But thanks be to God for those encouraging words Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12-16. Praise God!!!
