Angry Like Jesus | Emotions

In this message, Pastor Jacob discusses how it is actually possible to use your anger productively by being angry like Jesus. Emotions are electric.

Joy. Sadness. Anger. Compassion. God has given each of us the capacity to feel deeply. And when we can better process our powerful emotions, we can start to understand how He will use them for His good.

Jesus wept. It’s the shortest sentence in the Bible but it reveals so much about who Jesus was. He was not aloof, or distant from the people he met. Jesus was present. He wept. Jesus felt…deeply. The Bible shows us many examples of Jesus’s emotions: love, compassion, righteous anger, sadness, and more. In this series, we’ll look at how Jesus processed emotions and how following His example can help us see how our own emotions can be used to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives.

At times, Jesus was angry, but he never sinned. That means that not only is it possible for us to be angry but sometimes it is appropriate to be angry. However, to avoid sin, we must not use our anger destructively, but rather we must use our anger productively by doing what Jesus did being angry like Jesus. How? Pastor Jacob discusses some practical ways to use anger productively in the third part of our Emotions series, Angry Like Jesus.
