Hi, Faith Community!
This Sunday we’ll be talking about anger as we continue in the “Running from God” series on the Book of Jonah. The Bible teaches, “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires” (James 1.19-20). I have seen this in my life. Rarely have I seen someone angry and accomplishing God-honoring things. Rarely have I been angry and not had to ask for forgiveness for something I have said or done. This is because so often our own anger is because of selfishness.
Because of this and for various other reasons, we tend to not talk a lot about God’s anger. But the Bible, and especially the book of Jonah, shows that God’s anger helps us to trust him, because God’s anger flows from his heart, and his heart is filled with great concern and love for us. When God is angry, he pursues us to restore us.
Whether you watch at home or are on campus on Sundays, you matter to us and you matter to God, and we are one church with one mission: to help everyone meet, know and follow Jesus.
