Just a Thought . . .

9 Dec

Hebrews 12:14,15, “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;”

Sometimes the 17th century King James text speaks so clearly with a 21st century voice that we are dumbstruck, having not one word to add by way of practical application.

The above verses are like that.  They so clearly ask us, “With whom are we bitter?  How many onlookers have been defiled by our bitterness?”

Deep questions for all of us . . .
