Sermon No: 2805-The test of bitterness
SERMON TOPIC: The test of bitterness
Speaker: Ken Paynter
Date: 1 May 2016
Topic Groups: BITTERNESS, OVERCOMING
Many professing Christians have not entered the abundant life that Jesus Christ promised to His followers.
Their testimony is not one of gain, but of loss, their spiritual life is fore shadowed in the Old Testament wanderings of the Israelites, wandering around in the desert grumbling and complaining about every new challenge.
They reflect longingly on their previous life of slavery and the Lord has to provide for them or they would starve.
They never cross over the Jordan into the abundant life of fulfilment that is on offer to the Spirit led child of God but languish and die in the wilderness, brought out of Egypt but never brought into the promised land.
