Where There's Smoke: Anger

Series: Where There's Smoke

Where There's Smoke: Anger

March 14, 2021 | John Durham

Passage: James 3:13-18

FEW CHRISTIANS KNOW HOW TO MANAGE ANGER, SO WE JUST PASS IT ALONG!

 

GODLY ANGER OFTEN RISES WHEN OTHERS AREN’T GETTING WHAT THEY DESERVE …AND IT’S CONSTRUCTIVE.  EPH 4:26, be angry…but don’t sin!

UNGODLY ANGER OFTEN RISES WHEN WE DON’T GET WHAT WE’RE SURE WE DESERVE…AND IT’S DESTRUCTIVE.


JAMES 3
:13-14 Wise people are always humble. HOW MUCH OF MY ANGER IS ABOUT MY SELF-CENTEREDNESS?

 

JAMES 3:15-16 HOW MUCH OF MY ANGER IS ABOUT ME NOT HAVING WHAT OTHERS HAVE

 

WHAT’S INSIDE OF YOU IS COMING FOR YOU AND FOR THOSE AROUND YOU!

 

JAMES 3:17  DEALING WITH ANGER BIBLICALLY, 4 Things:
1. YOU HAVE PEACE ON EARTH WHEN YOU HAVE PEACE WITH THE GOD OF HEAVEN.

JAMES 3:18 2. PLANT SEEDS OF PEACE WHICH DO EVENTUALLY GROW INTO A HARVEST

JAMES 4:1 3. ASK GOD TO DO MORE WORK IN YOUR HEART THAN THE HEARTS OF OTHERS.

JAMES 4:2 4. THANK GOD FOR EVERY GOOD THING HE HAS GIVEN YOU. What if the opposite of anger wasn’t peace, but gratitude?

 

Who is our example in this? PHILIPPIANS 2:5-8
