[Download Mp3] DESTROYING THE ROOT OF BITTERNESS – Apostle Johnson Suleman

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. 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. Hebrews 12:14-15.

The seed of bitterness is a hurt that is planted in someone. It may be intentional or unintentional. Someone does not mean to hurt you, but you were hurt. Sometimes the hurt is only imagined. No one has hurt you, but somehow you feel that someone has done something wrong to you. There are also times when the hurt may be the very chastisement of God upon your life. That is the context of Hebrews 12:14-15.
The soil of bitterness is a heart that harbors hostility and does not deal with hurt by the grace of God. When someone becomes bitter, the bitterness takes root in the heart and grows deeper.
Bitterness will affect you physically, emotionally, and spiritually because the fruit of bitterness is an acid that destroys its container.
Hatefulness and holiness do not dwell in the same heart. The only true way for this “painful root to be removed,” is to have a genuine, “come to Jesus’ moment, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you through your valley, of “grudges,” and “unforgiveness,” into the “Light of the world,” where the “dark work of Satan,” no longer holds its grip, on you.
