Cold Turkey – Getting Rid of Anger

Pastor Jason Burns

November 3, 2019

Proverbs 4:23 // "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

Ephesians 4:26-27 // "Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun go down on your anger, nor give the devil a foothold."

The goal of anger is to carry it the least amount of time as possible.

Greed - I owe me

Jealousy - God owes me

Guilt says I owe you

Anger says YOU OWE ME.

Ephesians 4:31-32 // "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."

Getting rid of anger is more important that getting paid back.

  1. Identify who you are angry with.
  2. Decide what was taken from you.
  3. Cancel the debt.

Forgiveness breaks the power of anger.
