Sermons about Anger
Paul tells us to “be angry, but do not sin” (Ephesians 4:26a). If you’ve not been angry recently, then you are disobeying the command to be angry. It reveals that you don’t care deeply about things that should enrage you. But the greater, more frequent problem is that you are angry, and you simply don’t know how to get over it. Whether it shows itself as rage, impatience, silence, or withdrawal, anger will eat you up. This message examines the core causes, and provides insight on how to deal with it effectively.
Sermon on Ephesians 4:26-27 by Pastor Dan Hendley.
Since Jesus blesses the poor in spirit, those who live in His Kingdom must pursue personal and public peace.
How can we cleanse our heart from anger? How can we remain calm when everyone around is angry?
Love is not irritable...it is not resentful. That sounds "nice" doesn't it? Yet what does it look like in practice? While the words of 1 Corinthians 13 may sound nice in a wedding they are extremely difficult to put into practice. In fact, it is hard to love people...but fortunately God is in the business of helping me do the impossible.
There are people in our lives that seem perfect. But we know better: no one's perfect. Yet, Jesus is calling his people to be perfect just as God is perfect. Does Jesus really expect us to be perfect? How do we even seek to be perfect? Listen as pastor Jody Sledge challenges us to understand Jesus' command and resolve to be perfect.
Being able to understand God's Word requires a correct understanding of who God is. Contrary to what the Pharisees and Religious leaders of Jesus' day believed and taught, God is not a cosmic policeman looking to punish every offense at the first opportunity. God is a Father, and His Law must be understood and interpreted in that light. In this sermon, Pastor Josh shows that in order to love we must be sons of our Father, but in order to be sons of our Father, we must first understand who our Father is.
The Christian should never retaliate to injustices inflicted upon Him, but should always leave vengeance in the hands of God. But how does one realistically do this? Jesus teaches that the waters of a believer's soul should run deep with other concerns besides personal justice.
