5th Point of Light: Turn away from bitterness and to God’s peace
John 16:33
• Are you broken? He was broken, like bread, for us.
• Are you despised? He was despised and rejected by men.
• Do you cry out that you can’t take any more? He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
• Has someone betrayed you or turned against you? He was sold out and some hid their faces from him as if he were a leper.
• Are your most significant relationships broken? He loved, yet he was rejected.

1 John 5:13, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
