Anger and rage seem to be all too common in our world today. Everyone seems to have a short fuse! We see it online, through the media, on our commutes, and in our relationships. It’s the default emotion when things don’t go right, and this intense emotion can be very destructive when handled in unhealthy ways. In this video, we’ll be learning from the Bible how we can navigate the complexities of anger, how to avoid its destructive tendencies, and how to manage this emotion in a God-honoring way.


Jesus was not known as an angry person all all but he did get angry.
[Ephesians 4:26-27]
And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.

[Matthew 21:12-14]

“Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves. He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves!” The blind and the lame came to him in the Temple, and he healed them.


3 things we can learn from Jesus and how we can be angry in a way that honors God.


1. Jesus was angry on behalf of others.

2. Jesus flipped tables not people.

In our effort to be right, have forgotten to be loving.

3. Jesus healed those that were hurting.


[Colossians 2:13-14]

You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.


[Ephesians 6:12]

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
