Pastor Derek talks about Anger and how we can learn from the way Jesus used it.
Bible Lesson :
http://bible.us/Jas1.20.NLT Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.
The Incredible Hulk is arguably one of the strongest superheros out there, but his problem is with his control of it. Having the right reign on our emotions is a good thing, Christ showed an interesting example of this when He overturned the moneychangers tables in the temple. So often Jesus showed love and compassion to all He came into contact, it is almost jeering to then read about Him throwing what we may consider to be a temper tantrum, but if we really look at His purpose we understand that Christ had control. He was forcefully removing the things that did not belong in the temple to create room for the things that did, those blind and lame - in need of healing. We can do the same, instead of bottling the anger and letting it cause us to explode, we can find how to route it and let God mold it into something that blesses another instead!
