How to “Get rid of Anger”?

 

  1. Scripture Concerning Anger…

Proverbs 14:2929 Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.

Proverbs 29:11 Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.                                                                      Proverbs 15:1818 A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.                                                                                                                                                                                        James 4:1-3 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet[a] you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Psalm 37:8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.

Proverbs 22:24 Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered,

Proverbs 16:3232 Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. Ecclesiastes 7:99 Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.

Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Ephesians 4:26-31 NIV

26 “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,

27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others upaccording to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, 31and every form of malice. My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment.                         Proverbs 19:11 11 A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.

Colossians 3:8 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.

III. Application (How do I apply what I learned about anger  to my life?): Paul addresses the issue of anger in the church. Tha statistics show that there is a large percentage of the churched using their liberties in Christ to justify their right to display anger.  This sin is never brought to light because of fear, shame, reprisal, & rejection. A true believer, Christian will hate this sin, but is ignorant of what the Word says nor knows or understands how to “get rid of anger”. According to the Scriptures,  anger leads to more wrath, evil, and judgement. Before Jesus died & rose again, He displayed to His disciples how they should love and serve one another by washing their feet and saying this Mark 10:42 “Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles, lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 

Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. 44 And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Therefore, let us not be ignorant of God’s Word concerning how to walk with one another…

  • “confess sins… “If we confess our sins, God is faithful & righteous to forgive ous sins & cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
  • “be filled (controlled/led/abide) by the Spirit.”
  • “pray without ceasing.”
  • “forgive & (Agape-sacrificially, like Christ) love one another.” “Think of the other person as more important than self.”

All 4 of the above commands must be practiced/implemented by faith to “get rid (turn away from) the evil of anger”.

Prayer for us all to walk in Spirit, truth, and love.

 

 IV. Conclusion:  Let us embrace and act upon this truth…James 1:20 “Human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”
