Sermons about Anger
When it comes to finding shapes in the clouds, people won't always agree, and this week Mr. Jacobs explains that the same thing can happen when people try to understand the bible.
Jesus is not always the sweet, monotone, lack-of-life person that is often portrayed in movies and television. This story allows us a peek into what might make Jesus angry, especially as it pertains to His church.
Ever been wronged by someone? Ever find yourself in an argument that ends with you thinking "Oh yeah, I'll show them". Did you find that instead of working towards forgiveness you were plotting revenge? What if Jesus, who gave His life so that we may be forgiven, had taken the same road? Listen in on part 3 of Hitched and learn the importance of forgiveness.
Are we running to or running from the righteousness of God? Our interpersonal relationships will define our direction . . . quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
Anger is a big deal! Most of us just try to gloss over it, but it is a big, big deal--as big as murder. But why? In this exposition of Matthew 5:21-26, we learn why anger is regarded as murder in Jesus' eyes, how we are to respond to the angry, and the results if we don't deal with anger immediately.
Jonah is now ready to obey the Lord. despite his lack of heart for people, the Lord works through him. We tend to be black and white and want as well as expect perfection. God sees the potential as well as the direction of our hearts. He goes to Nineveh and the people respond to the Message and repent. God who is merciful responds in grace. Firstly, Jonah is angry about two things: he knows God is compassionate and is angry that the enemy have received grace. We too can be like this when we have received so much grace ourselves, but feel disgust at others. How is it that the tax collectors and prostitutes were drawn to Jesus. He wasn't 'soft' on sin at all? Yet he had deep love and compassion for them. The second thing Jonah why Jonah gets angry is this: He is more in touch with his OWN comforts than God's heart. The various areas of perfectionism can expose our fears. God cares for people. Do we?
Executive Director Jim Newheiser speaks about the prevalence and issues related to dealing with anger in counseling.
God is full of emotion and has given us emotions. Emotional health begins and ends with God. We need him. Unchecked emotion can lead us astray.
Having considered in last week's sermon what Jesus saved us FROM at the Cross, this week we consider what Jesus saved us TO at the Cross by looking at the two criminals that were crucified with Jesus. The first criminal responded to Jesus with mocking anger. The second criminal responded to Jesus with humble faith. Jesus responds to humble faith with saving grace. As with the second criminal, Jesus saves all who trust in Him as their Savior to a new eternity in heaven rather than the condemnation in hell that we deserve. However, he also saves us to a new life and new mission. So, don't curse God and die, like the first criminal; instead, come to Jesus and live. Let of your anger and pride, receiving Jesus as your Savior in humble faith. Then live the life Jesus saved you for while rejoicing and giving thanks.
