Hello My Name Is
Part 4

Matthew 24:10-13 NKJV “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Three ways we get mad:

1. Mad at our brother

2. Mad at our sister

Luke 10:38-42 NLT “As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. 40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” 41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

3. Mad at God

John 11:21 NIV “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died”

Psalm 73:2-5 NCV “I had almost stopped believing; I had almost lost my faith because I was jealous of proud people. I saw wicked people doing well. 4 They are not suffering; they are healthy and strong. 5 They don’t have troubles like the rest of us; they don’t have problems like other people.”

verse 16-20 “I tried to understand all this, but it was too hard for me to see 17  until I went to the Temple of God. Then I understood what will happen to them. 18 You have put them in danger; you cause them to be destroyed. 19 They are destroyed in a moment; they are swept away by terrors. 20 It will be like waking from a dream. Lord, when you rise up, they will disappear.”

The key to being free from offense…


Philippians 2:6 NIV “Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.”

Philippians 2:17 NIV “But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.”

Matthew 10:39 NIV “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”
