Anger

Anger

Is there anything good in being angry?  Yes! But, bad too.   Anger is right and wrong, productive and destructive. The problem is not anger, but sin.  The Bible says, “Be  angry  and  do not sin.  Do not let the sun go down  on your anger.”  (Eph. 4:26)     Sinful anger is being against another or something.   We put ourselves in place of God.  It can become a grudge.  Rather than holding it in, hold it up to God. 

God has anger, too.  It’s against  sin.  But, God, in love destroyed sinful anger by His Son Jesus.  He took it to the Cross.  His forgiveness empowers us to limit the place of sinful anger in our lives. When it bursts forth, deal with it quickly in faith, by the power of His forgiveness.   We practice what the Psalmist says of God’s  anger against us,  “His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime..”                   (Psalm 30:5)
