Bitterness: Bondage or Grace (Part 1)

Pastor Rob preached fantastic messages on the subject of bitterness several weeks ago. Not that bitterness is fantastic but the Holy Spirit infused-message directly from the Word of God was eye-opening. You can listen to part 1 here. Hebrews 12:12-16 is the Scripture and a few of my notes are listed.
  • Bitterness is something to put away..Ephesians 4:31
  • Bitterness is a sin
Bitter people:
  • are angry people
  • are score keepers with remarkable memories
  • are hurt people who "hurt" people with bitterness spilling over to other people
  • misunderstand God's grace
  • misunderstand the difference between forgiveness and reconcilation
  • who are fearful of people discovering they are bitter and fearful of that letting go of their bitterness will diminish what has happened to them
  • are often oblivious to how their bitterness affects themselves and those around them, bitterness has a physical affect (Proverbs 17:22)
If you are a bitter person or who knows someone who is bitter there is help from the Word of God. Check back tomorrow for part 2 of Bondage or Grace.

  1. It’s interesting that you posted this because it was the topic of our small group last night. Dan is preaching a series on relationships and this one came up.
