Pastor’s Corner – Believing God is Good Checkmates My Bitterness

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

By Joe Palmer Pastor, Fellowship Baptist Church

Bitterness is a condition brought on by a perception that another person has hurt us or blocked us (or someone we love) from having what is rightfully ours. I know what bitterness is, and so do you. Perhaps you’re bitter about something right now. Perhaps there is a person you would like to see humbled and apologetic about what they have said or done. If this is the case, give it up!

The fact is that someone has something to be bitter with you about. Not one of us is free from having hurt someone else. And in this realization is the seed thought for escaping the miserable condition of being bitter. God tells us to be “kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:32) Understanding that God is good and willing to forgive us of our sins because of Jesus Christ, gives us the logic for forgiving any other human being on the planet for whatever they have done. A person forgiven by God has been forgiven things far worse than that person you are bitter with. If you have been forgiven through Jesus Christ, you have been forgiven far worse things.

If you believe that God is good, that He loves you, that He has made it possible to be forgiven and have eternal life, and if you have this wonderful gift free of charge, then be free!

Be free! Be free of your bitterness!
