The Blessedness of the Unoffended

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded May 1959

"The word of God does take account of the possibility of our being offended with Him. It does not say anywhere that that possibility should never arise and will never arise. The Lord has no where said that we shall never have any occasion for being offended with Him. He has indicated that there will be plenty of opportunity for so stumbling at Him, falling over Him, coming down because of Him - if you like: crashing because of Him. There will be plenty of occasion or opportunity for doing so. He has never said that it will never be so. It is as well for us to recognize that."

2 Kings 2:1, Matt 11:2, Heb 10:35
