It seems relatively harmless to harbor negative emotions toward people or circumstances that have caused us pain. We feel justified in believing that we cannot simply forgive a hurtful event. In this message, Alistair Begg shows that for the Christian, choosing to nurse bitterness brings about alienation, not vindication. Only by seeing ourselves in the light of Christ’s work on the cross can we cultivate a forgiving heart where bitterness cannot take root.
