Thanks for joining us today!
There is much discussion in our society about what Jesus said or didn't say as well as what He meant by what He said or didn't say. So how do we know who is right? We go straight to the source, HIS WORD! Journey with us in 2023 as we explore what Jesus said on a variety of topics and let's dig in together as we seek to understand, apply and live out all that "JESUS SAID".
Anger seems to be on the rise in our culture but even Jesus got angry at times. So is it okay to be angry? If so, when should we be angry and what should we do with our anger? What was Jesus angry about and how does that compare with what we get angry about?
Everyone experiences anger at some point in their lives, but how we handle it can make all the difference. In this series, “Everyone Who Is Angry”, we will explore the different forms of anger and how Jesus addressed them. We'll examine Jesus' own anger, the roots of anger, and the different reasons why people become angry, including pride, fear, and the desire to defend God. We'll also delve into the hidden anger and cynicism that can be lurking beneath the surface of our hearts. Join us as we learn from what Jesus said about, and/or in response to, anger and discover how we can manage our own anger in a healthy and constructive way.
Most times a critical or cynical attitude comes from hidden anger and vice versa. JESUS says the only remedy to that is forgiveness and the love that comes from GOD. This love produces love for HIM and others. Fight hidden anger with the loving forgiveness of JESUS.
Discussion Questions -
2. How is a critical or cynical spirit (attitude) a real sign of hidden anger?
3. In this account from Luke 7:36-50 how and why does the woman show audacious faith and love? Why doesn't Simon even show common courtesy to JESUS?
4. How can familiarity (deep knowledge) of GOD's commandments make us hard-hearted towards lost people? What's the remedy for a hard-heart?
5. Please re-read Romans 2:4. Does GOD's kindness lead you to repentance and real love for HIM or do you take HIS loving-kindness for granted? What if any adjustments do you need to make to honor JESUS' kindness?
Please pray for one another.
