Overcoming Anger
  • Ephesians 425-32

Overcoming Anger
  • The response of secular culture
  • Reject It! (Resentment)
  • Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the
    vessel in which it is stored than to anything on
    which it is poured. Mark Twain
  • Release It! (Retaliation and Rage)
  • What makes anger so elusive and so incredibly
    dangerous is that it flares suddenly, powerfully,
    and irrationally. It takes no counsel of the
    future. It takes no counsel of personal safety,
    even ones own. David Jeremiah, Slaying The
    Giants in Your Life
  • Repurpose It (Re-channel It!)

  • Genesis 43-7 So it came about in the course of
    time that Cain brought an offering to the LORD of
    the fruit of the ground. 4 Abel, on his part
    also brought of the firstlings of his flock and
    of their fat portions. And the LORD had regard
    for Abel and for his offering 5 but for Cain
    and for his offering He had no regard. So Cain
    became very angry and his countenance fell. 6
    Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry?
    And why has your countenance fallen? 7 "If you
    do well, will not your countenance be lifted up?
    And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at
    the door and its desire is for you, but you must
    master it."

Realize the Source
  • Mark 31-5 He entered again into a synagogue and
    a man was there whose hand was withered. 2 They
    were watching Him to see if He would heal him on
    the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. 3 He
    said to the man with the withered hand, "Get up
    and come forward!" 4 And He said to them, "Is it
    lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath,
    to save a life or to kill?" But they kept silent.
    5 After looking around at them with anger,
    grieved at their hardness of heart,

Realize the Source
  • V.26- Be angry, and yet DO NOT SIN
  • When guided by reason, anger is a right
    affection, so the Scripture permits it, and not
    only permits, but on fit occasion demands it . .
    . there can be no more surer or sadder token of
    an utterly prostrate moral condition than the not
    being able to be angry with sin.

    anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all
    men. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on
    you, be at peace with all men. 19 Never take
    your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the
    wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS
    MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. 20 "BUT IF
    be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

  • The question invariably arises, it has before
    and it will again Rubin, are you bitter? And
    in answer to that I will say, After all thats
    been said and donethe fact that the most
    productive years of my life, between the ages of
    twenty-nine and fifty, have been stolen the fact
    that I was deprived of seeing my children grow
    upwouldnt you think I would have the right to
    be bitter. But that has never been in my nature,
    or my lot, to do things the easy way. If I have
    learned nothing else in my life, Ive learned
    that bitterness only consumes the vessel that
    contains it. And for me to permit bitterness to
    control or to infect my life in anyway whatsoever
    would be to allow those who imprisoned me to take
    even more than the 22 years theyve already
    taken. Now that would make me an accomplice to
    their crime.
