He Makes the Bitter Sweet

James reminds us that as disciples in the school of Christ we are called to “count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4). Do we as the people of God diligently seek Him through prayer and rest in His powerful presence and word for He can turn our bitter circumstances into sweet relief. The main points for the sermon (below) based on Exodus chapter 15 are as follows:

  1. From the sea of victory to the bitter waters of unbelief
  2. We are tested and found wanting
  3. Yet God in His mercy saves and heals His beloved people
