Hung Up On Bitterness
21 October 2012
In this teaching Pastor Brett brought a convicting word from Hebrews 12:14-15 warning us against the dangers and the poison of bitterness. We saw how bitterness blinds our vision, keeping us from seeing how wretched and in need of grace we are. We also saw how it blocks God’s grace in our lives, that it blossoms into trouble and ultimately blackens our soul with sin. We ended seeing a beautiful picture from Exodus 15 of how the Cross of Christ makes the bitter waters turn sweet.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
