“Be Angry. Do Not Sin”

August 11, 2020

“Be Angry. Do Not Sin”

Blessings folk!

In light of who we are in the Lord, Ephesians 1-3…
In light of being equipped, Ephesians 4…
Paul fires off a series of instructions, commandments, etc.


Eph 4:25-27

Therefore,
laying aside falsehood,
SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR,
for we are members of one another.

BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN;
do not let the sun go down on your anger,

and do not give the devil an opportunity.


We are to:
Lay aside falsehood.
Speak Truth to OneAnother.
Be angry, yet not with sin.
Not allow the sun to go down on our anger.
Not give the devil an opportunity.

Oh yeah, we like that “angry” thing.
Too often we treat it as permission to be mad/angry/etc.
Nope.

Listen to what else the Word says…

Psa 4:4
Tremble (with anger or fear), and do not sin;
Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still.
Selah.

Psa 37:8
Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.

Pro 14:29
He who is slow to anger has great understanding,
But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly.

 Pro 19:11
A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger,
And it is his glory to overlook a transgression.

Ecc 7:9
Do not be eager in your heart to be angry,
For anger resides in the bosom of fools.

Mat 5:22
“But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.

Mar 3:5
After looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

Jhn 2:15
And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables;

There is much more.

Jesus experienced anger, yet He did not sin.

We can experience anger, yet not sin.
Do not let the sun go down on your anger…do not “play” with it in your thoughts.

Why?

Because such behavior opens the door for the enemy…

“Speak Truth To One Another”

August 10, 2020

“Speak Truth To One Another”

Blessings folk!

Have you “learned the way of Christ”?

As a true Believer you have a “new way”.

The Way of Christ…
Lay aside the old self.
Put on the old self.
The likeness of God.
Created in righteousness.
Created in holiness.
Renewed in the spirit of your mind.

It is important to know this.
It is important to remember/live this.

The first word of the very next verse?
“Therefore…”

So, in light of this…

Eph 4:25

Therefore,
laying aside falsehood,
SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR,
for we are members of one another.

Because we have laid aside the old self and put on the new self, we are able to…
Lay aside falsehood.
Speak Truth to one another.
Understand that we are members of one another!

Selah!

“Put Off. Put On”

August 9, 2020

“Put Off. Put On”

Blessings folk!

Read again…

Eph 4:20-24

But you did not learn Christ in this way,

if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus,

that, in reference to your former manner of life,
you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,

and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

and put on the new self,
which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.


Truth is in Jesus.
You know Truth…if you have truly heard Him.
You know Truth…if you have truly believed Him.
You know Truth…if you have been taught by Him.

What is the point the Spirit is making here?

In reference to the former life and the current life…

Former life:

  • Put aside the old self
  • Put aside the corruption
  • Put aside the lusts of deceit

Current life;
  • Be renewed in the spirit of your mind…that is an interesting thought
  • Put on the new self
  • Put on the likeness of God provided
  • Put on righteousness
  • Put on holiness
  • Put on Truth

We are new creatures.
We are new creations.
We are renewed in the likeness of God, created in righteousness and holiness of Truth.
Selah!

The Word: Episode1375 Psalm 72:1-4

“But You Did Not Learn Christ In This Way…”

August 8, 2020

“But You Did Not Learn Christ In This Way…”

Blessings folk!

Remember how the Gentiles/the world walks…
In futility of mind
Darkened in understanding
Excluded from the Life of God because of ignorance in them
Excluded because of hardness of heart
Callous
Given to sensuality
Practicing every kind of impurity with greediness.

Thus is the world.

The Spirit continues through Paul…one long verse.
Read it as a complete thought…

Eph 4:20-24

But you did not learn Christ in this way,

if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus,

that, in reference to your former manner of life,
you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,

and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

and put on the new self,
which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

Ah, that powerful word, “but”.
In contrast to the previous.

They had not learned Christ in this way.
They knew to walk not in the path of the Gentiles.
They knew what to do.
Do we?

Lay aside the old self!
