Series: Sweet Emotions
Scripture: Eph 4:26-27, James 1:19-20
Big Idea: We all get angry sometimes. Where we get into trouble is when our expression of anger doesn’t line up with God’s design for how we express our anger. It’s ok to be angry, but we need to be certain that we are angry about things falling short of God’s expectations, not our own expectations; otherwise we are sinning in our anger. We need to identify what angers God, and move quickly toward him and slowly toward expressions of anger; we need to be grieved before we respond, and seek God’s guidance every time our actions are due to anger. Only then will we be modeling the grace of God founded in an understanding of his righteous anger.
