Bitterness can kill our souls.
I’ve seen it far too many times. A horrible, tragic thing happens between two people.
A real wounding happens. But instead of allowing the healing balm of forgiveness to enter into this pain, they allow it to fester, to get infected with bitterness, and to turn into something that truly threatens their life.
Christ, in conquering Sin, Death, Hell, and the Grave, has entered our woundedness and as the healer and physician wants to bring his cauterizing fire to these wounds to kill the infection and bring freedom and healing.
