Gathering in Christ
And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.
Whether we like it or not, God will burn us in His fire until we are as pure as He is, and it is during the process that we cry, as Job did, “I wish You would leave me alone.” We have the idea that prosperity, or happiness, or morality is the end of a man’s existence; according to the Bible it is something other -- namely “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” When a man is right with God, God puts his honor in that man’s keeping. Job was one of those through whom comes out his implicit confidence in God. “And blessed is He who is not offended because of Me,” said our LORD.
