Are you still struggling with emotional pain, addictions, frustrations, anger, relationship issues, or other worries, fears and concerns? Many Christians, though saved, are still fighting a battle that they just don't know where it comes from. The Holy Spirit wants to heal you of all of these things by introducing you to a loving relationship with God as your Father. This practical teaching will show you how to heal from the fractures in your heart and soul that came from your upbringing, and explain to you the process you can engage in to cooperate with God as He reparents you, and transforms you into His image.
Life with Christ is all about change. The new self is one of truth and honesty. Anger can cause great harm!
“Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” 1 Timothy 2:8. Anger is the great poison that destroys so many relationships. Men, wounded by others, tend to perpetuate this poison. Paul calls us to lift up holy hands without anger or disputing.
Is the God of the New Testament different from the God of the Old Testament? To listen to many people--even in the church--today you would think so. The Old Testament appears to emphasize the wrath and vengeance of God, while in the New Testament God seems to be kinder and gentler--a God of love and mercy. However, as Pastor Ron Burtz demonstrates in this message God doesn't change and his wrath still burns against the godlessness and wickedness of those who reject Him. We'll see how the wrath of God makes His mercy in Christ relevant to those who are being saved.
Anger is a part of being made in God's image. It can be a good thing at times. However, too often, it does a great deal of harm. Often anger arises within the context of interpersonal conflict, where there is a perceived wrong. How we handle such conflicts will be largely determined by how we hand our anger. Solomon observed that a hot-tempered person will add fuel to the fire of the conflict, while a slow-to-anger person will bring things down a notch. Therefore, being slow to anger will bring conflict to it best end. For, while uncontrolled anger is a gateway to destructive sins, controlled anger is a gateway to constructive action that will lead to reconciliation and growth. Therefore, keep your anger under control when handling conflict. By the grace of God, learn a lesson from this proverb. First, when handling conflict, slow down, listen, and validate your perceptions. You might find that the conflict is based on nothing more than a misunderstanding. Second, cool down, so that your anger becomes a gateway to constructive action.
