傷つくことは必ずやってくる Offences will come your way

This week at Jesus Lifehouse Osaka, Luke shared an important message. (* Pastor Rod’s message)

Offences will come your way

マタイ18:7 世は人をつまずかせるから不幸だ。つまずきは避けられない。だが、つまずきをもたらす者は不幸である
Matthew 18:7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!

1. 傷つくことは必ずやってくる
Offences will come your way




Did you know that offences will come.

You can be offended at school, work and even in your marriage.  Unless you are hiding in a cave, people will hurt you.

So the question is not  how to avoid offence. The question is, “how will I deal with it properly?”

Are you a duct tape? Or a non-stick fry pan?



マタイ13:21 しかし、自分のうちに根がないため、しばらくの間そうするだけで、みことばのために困難や迫害が起こると、すぐにつまずいてしまいます。
Matthew 13:21 But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.





Don’t be someone who easily throw off

One offence can start controlling your life and it  can become the center of your life.

If you are reading this and you know that you have that scar from offence, it’s okay!

Jesus can come into your heart and heal you. Let’s show our scars to God and ask Him to remove it.

2. あなたはどうする?-傷ついたままで生きていく?それともそこから開放されて生きていく?
What will you do? Live offended or free?

-悪い反応 Bad responses

(ヘブル 12:15) そのためには、あなたがたはよく監督して、だれも神の恵みから落ちる者がないように、また、苦い根が芽を出して悩ましたり、これによって多くの人が汚されたりすることのないように。
(Hebrews 12:15) See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.




Root of offence grows up

Deal with today’s offence today

If you are a parent, don’t pass on the offence to the next generation.

- 良い反応 Great responses

(申命記 30:19a) 私は、きょう、あなたがたに対して天と地とを、証人に立てる。私は、いのちと死、祝福とのろいを、あなたの前に置く。あなたはいのちを選びなさい。
(Deuteronomy 30:19a)This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.



Forgiveness is a choice followed by a feeling

Let’s choose life!!!

3. 神様にある赦しと自由の中で生きていこう!
Live in God’s way of forgiveness and freedom






Forgiveness doesn’t mean trust

It means “releasing” it.

Release your pain to God and let God deal with it.

Stop being the judge and let God do his job!!!

The more you release it, the more freedom you will enjoy.

Offences will come but let’s release it right away and live in God’s freedom!!!
