Anger

00:00

Description

God has given us the energy of anger not for blowing up but for edifying and helping others.

Anger is a permitted Christian emotion. In fact in Ephesians  4:26 Paul ordered the Christian to get angry. But then he said there are seven things we must not do with anger such as sin, becoming bitter, saying angry things, stealing, and others. But there were two positive things that he said we should do with anger.

26 Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity—(Eph 4:26-27).

Paul said that we should take the energy of anger and use it to work so that we may have something to give to others, and also we should take the energy of anger and direct it at saying something edifying and life-changing in the context of what made us angry. God has given us the energy of anger not for blowing up but for edifying and helping others. Anger should be channeled through the fruit of the Spirit but it should not be suppressed.
