One Of The Most Common Ways The Enemy Tries To Stop Us In Our Tracks
Many of us struggle with bitterness, but if you ask people about it, they are likely to say that it is not a big issue for them. One reason they fail to see bitterness at work in their lives is because it is a root. It says as much in Hebrews 12:14-15:
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.
When I looked up resentment in the Oxford Dictionary and found that it means, “to retain feelings about an insult or injury sustained.”
Sounds like bitterness to me.
Bitterness is called a root because its manifestation is not always obvious. It lies below the surface, spreading out and cropping up in various ways. If we just removed the fruit of bitterness, it would be like trying to remove dandelions by mowing off their tops, only to see them reappeared again the next day.
In this little booklet I not only uncover the root, and examine the fruit, but also show how it can be removed from our lives.
