Summary: We must learn to forgive and overcome hurt.

HANDLE HURT?

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr

Text: Matthew 24:10 And then many shall be offended, and shall betray one another,

and shall hate one another.

Matthew 18:22 Jesus saith unto them,

I say not unto you,

UNTIL SEVEN TIMES:

BUT UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN.

Hebrews 12: 12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

15 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.

I ponder hurt.

Those that loved Jesus came to him as he sat upon the Mount of Olives.

They had many questions that needed answering.

One question was, WHEN?

Lord what will be the signs of Your Coming?

Jesus had many visible signs to watch and to be

prepared.

Text: Matthew 24:10 And then many shall be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

Jesus had a great lesson here to offer,

in the last days there would come in the church

an attitude of hurt and offended spirits.

Jesus warned us to be ready for this day, GET READY.

I hope it will not be too strong, but this offended attitude will give birth to an OFFENDED SPIRIT THAT WILL THRIVE AND GROW WITHIN THE CHURCH.

WE MUST KNOW THIS ATTITITUDE OR SPIRIT

WILL TRY TO ESTABLISH IT’S DOMAIN

WITHIN THE WALLS OF THE CHURCH.

Preachers, teachers, Christian workers are having to deal with HURT on a daily basis.

We see the enemy working over time to get God’s

people hurt, disappointed, and bitter

with others.

So you have been hurt?

The tears turn to steam?

Why God?

How long, O, God?

I am so wounded that life ebbs away?

Who cares?

Why don’t you bury the hatchet, and not in the

offenders head?

The Bible warns us that bitterness is a root and grows unground, out of the visiual fields, and this hurt and disappointmented spirit can grow.

Hebrews 12: 12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned

out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

15 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.

You can cut down the visible growth, and the roots will regrow the problem, hurt is an internal problem.

There seems to thrive within the walls of the church

mean, vengeful, angry,

bitter, cynical, cold,

hateful, venomous,

hostile hearts and minds .

Hurt and bitterness will always backfire and self destroy.

Hatred can hide in the hearts sitting on the pew singing praise to the Most High?

Bitterness and hurt are masks that hid the real issue ...

the real issue is unforgiveness

and looking on the negative side.

With this bitterness free flowing, one is not capable of accepting the love of God and great pleasure in living.
