Hebrews 12:14,15

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

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.


Why murmur why complain? God is merciful having sent Jesus His only son to help us. Jesus is expertly qualified to rescue, to direct, to address our needs more than we ourselves can comprehend. Bitterness drags down and can hurt the complainer more than the one who is complained about.

While life passes by, the bitter state is at a standstill accomplishing less, sleeping less, marking time-yes marching in place-or in circular motion. Be free of all this, let Jesus renew the mind-and rejoice!

It’s easy, He’s waiting for you to receive Him. In your quiet time ponder the goodness of God. Waste time no more but get to the best destination. Shake off that dusty bitter cloak and walk right over to joy-allow Jesus to teach you. Thereby you can identify peace and a clean heart.
