Did you ever think about how anger in a Christian’s life has many similarities to anger in an unbeliever’s life?
As a Christian you can commit any sin an unsaved person can except rejecting Jesus Christ
Key verses to consider: Esther 1:12, 19-2:1, 21; 3:5, 6; 5:9
SELFISHNESS – trigger to anger
If someone is treating you sinfully (and angers you) what is your responsibility?
? Are you ministering to them or sinning against them?
Psa 145:8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
1. Ask yourself what you are wanting [selfishly, because you love yourself] (James 4:1-3) 2. Ask the Lord to help you from focusing on loving them instead of loving yourself (Phil 2:1-8)
3. Trust in the sovereignty of God – nothing will happen to you that God doesn’t direct or permit (Gen 50:19, 20)
