The Bait of Satan

Christians girlfriends, have you ever been offended by something that someone has said to you or about you? Have you been offended by something that someone else has done?
Let's face it, we have all felt offended by something someone says or does at one time or another in our lives. It's going to happen! Jesus said to his disciples in Luke 17:1 "It is impossible that offenses will not come." The Bait of Satan by John Bevere exposes one of Satan's most deceptive snares used to pull believers out of God's will. It is the trap of offense (or feeling offended.) And most people who are ensnared don't even realize it. So don't be fooled! You are going to be offended and it is up to you how you are going to let it affect your relationship with God. You can learn how to not be ensnared in the victim mentality and walk in forgiveness.
Personal example - after I read the first 4 chapters of this book, God had already convicted me about 2 areas in my life that I needed to take care of. Ouch!
This will be one of our Tuesday morning studies. I'll post a synopsis of the 3rd study this week.
Have a good day!
