Overlooking Offense Week 4

Title: Can’t Please Everyone

1 Cor 1:18
1 Peter 2:7-8

It can seem like so many things now a days can cause offense. The Gospel itself is offensive but we don’t have to go out of our way as christians to be.

Main Passage: 1 Cor 10:31-33, 1 Cor 11:1
God is glorified when:

  1. We are looking for ways to love and not offend
    1 Cor 10:31, 1 Cor 9:19-22
  2. Our rights and comfort are laid down for others
    1 Cor 10:32, 1 Cor 10:24
  3. Our goal is to lead people to Jesus not winning arguments
    1 Cor 10:33, Luke 19:10
  4. We look like Jesus
    1 Cor 11:1, Matt 11:28-29, Luke 7:34
