HUNTSVILLE (TAB) — Glenn Price, worship pastor for Clements Baptist Church, Athens, sang two songs at the Alabama Baptist Pastors Conference prior to Clements Baptist Pastor Tim Anderson’s message: “Avoiding Bitterness” pulled from Hebrews 12:15. “If anyone goes a long time without encouragement, this thing called bitterness can come on the inside of us and cause us a lot of problems,” Anderson shared. “The root of bitterness needs very little soil to plant. It’s easy to plant but it’s oh so difficult to uproot it. … A bitter root always causes bitter fruit. Bitterness destroys our worship. Bitterness destroys our praise. In order to get rid of it, you have to have a passionate pursuit to do what Scripture tells us to do: run from bitterness,” he said. “Stop focusing on the person that caused you to be bitter in the first place. Stop focusing on the issue or situation that caused the problem. It must be put behind you.”
