“We should want to please Christ and not to offend Him.”
Jeremiah 15:12-21 – God is willing to bless His people if we abide in His law.
Romans 12: 9-21 – The things we say we believe, must be lived out in our life.
Matthew 16: 21-27
1.(v.21-23) Being mindful of the things of men more than the things of God offends Christ.
2.(v.24-27) To consider heaven’s rewards more than this world’s rewards pleases God.
