051417A-Putting Away Bitterness.mp3

Posted on 15 May 2017, Pastor: Dr Gregg Nash

Hebrews 12:15    Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

Bitterness – The unresolved violation of your justice system that produces hurt or anger   OR   prolonged unforgiveness.

FORGIVENESS: a choice of the will to reconcile with an offender by erasing the debt they owe you and living with the consequences.

Ephesians 4:31-32    Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:  Allow these things to be divorced from you

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
