Responding to Anger
As followers of Christ, we have a promise of a new identity in him. But a lot of us struggle to shake off the old habits that continue to plague us. So, what could it look like to get rid of those old habits and embrace the new habits that align with our new identity in Christ? Our new sermon series on identity entitled “Fully You” answers that question. Join us as we learn to recognize the spiritual roots of shame, forgive past hurts, and see how lasting change happens.
- Sunday's message was one that most of us can relate to because ALL of us deal with anger in our lives. What part of the message did you connect with the most?
- Anger is a sign, not a sin, that we can use to recognize what areas in our life are hot-buttons for us. How can we use anger to help us understand our emotions instead of letting anger control us?
- If anger helps point out our hurts and hang-ups, how do we communicate to others our base emotions instead of the secondary emotion of anger? How do we surrender those areas to God?
