Youth Sunday: Overcoming Anger (Ephesians 4:26-31, James 1:19-20, Psalm 37:8-9)

Ahmed Martin, January 29, 2017
Part of the Youth Sunday series, preached at a Sunday Morning Traditional service

We’ve all seen what being angry does to a person. Some of us have experienced it as well. Anger can affect our ability to think rationally, leading us to do things we would not have done otherwise. God has a plan for all of us and getting angry gets in the way of that plan for us.

Ephesians 4:26-31

26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil. 28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. 29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. (ESV)

James 1:19-20

19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. (ESV)

Psalm 37:8-9

Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
For the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. (ESV)
