Beating Bitterness & Overcoming Offense

Released October 11, 2022 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Episode 118: Beating Bitterness & Overcoming Offense   Here is something that few will tell you: God will allow things in your life that are potentially offensive and embittering. That is right – God will permit injustice, mistreatment, betrayal, abandonment, and denial into the lives of His children. And He does so on purpose!   In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, we unpack one of the strangest encounters anyone ever had with Jesus. When a woman comes to Him with an impossible need, Jesus seems to respond in a manner that is unfeeling, unmoved, and even unkind. What is the Master doing? He is empowering this woman to find that not even the most painful offense should be allowed to keep us from pressing into Jesus so that He can bring us the breakthroughs we long for.
