  Study Tools

GET YOUR MIND RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

INTRO: WHO HAS EVER BEEN MAD?

1: EVERYONE

a) ANGER IS AN EMOTION

b) EPH 4:26 SAYS BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT

c) ANGER IS HEALTHY WHEN USED IN THE PROPER WAY

POINT: WE ALL GET UPSET, BENT OUT OF SHAPE, SOMETIMES WE JUST LOSE OUR COOL COMPLETELY. HOW MANY TIMES DO WE GET ANGRY IN ONE DAY AND FALL INTO SIN? BETTER YET HOW DO YOU BE ANGRY AND SIN NOT? REMAINING PART OF VERSE 26 SAYS LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH.

2: STOP DWELLING ON IT

A) TOO MANY TIMES WE GET MAD AND WE JUST CAN’T LET IT GO.

B) HAVE YOU EVER STOP TO CONSIDER HOW MUCH EFFORT AND TIME IT TAKES TO BE MAD?

C) WE LOSE ENTIRELY TOO MUCH OF OUR LIVES TO ANGER

POINT: ANGER IS NOT SIN UNLESS ANGER GETS CONTROL. WE CAN GET MAD IT’S NORMAL HUMAN BEHAVIOR. BUT WHEN IT CONTROLS OUR ACTIONS AND OUR THOUGHTS WE HAVE A PROBLEM.

BODY: LOOK AT THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS.

1: JESUS KNOWS WHAT WE’RE ABOUT

A) HE KNEW COMPLETELY WHAT THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS WAS DOING

B) HE KNEW THEIR WORKS HE KNEW WHAT THERE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES WERE

C) HE PRAISED THEM FOR THEY HAD DONE WELL

POINT: OF ALL THE WORK THE CHURCH HAD DONE THEY WERE STILL LACKING, THEY STILL HAD ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT.

2: LEFT THY FIRST LOVE

A) OUR FIRST LOVE SHOULD BE SERVING JESUS CHRIST

B) NOTHING SHOULD COME BEFORE OUR SERVICE TO THE LORD

C) THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS HAD BECOME SO DRIVEN BY THEIR WORK TO TRY AND PROVE WHO WAS REAL AND WHO WAS FAKE THAT THEY FORGOT TO HONOR THEIR FIRST COMMITMENT

D) V 6 SAYS THEY HATED THE DEEDS OF THE NICOLAITANES, DID THEIR HATRED OF THIS DRIVE THEM TO FORGETTING CHRIST.

POINT: JESUS SAID HE HATED THE DEEDS OF THE NICOLAITANES AS WELL, BUT OR LOVE OR HATRED OF SOMETHING CAN’T CONSUME TO THE POINT WHERE IT CONTROLS US.

3: TRUST GOD THROUGH YOUR TRIALS

A) WHEN WE GO THROUGH SOMETHING WE AT TIMES CAN BECOME IMPATIENT EVEN ANGRY

B) EVERYHTING IS JUST FALLING APART WE CAN’T CATCH A BREAK

C) THESE ARE FERTILE GROUNDS FOR BLESSINGS

D) REV 3: 7-8 GOD OPENS DOORS NO ELSE CAN

POINT: DON’T LET SATAN GET THE BEST OF YOU, WE ALL GO THROUGH HARD TIMES WE ALL HAVE OBSTACLES AND UNCERTAINTY INOUR LIVES FROM TIME TO TIME. THE TEST IS WHAT DO WE DO WITH WHAT GOD GIVES BAD OR GOOD JOY OR ANGER HAPPINESS OR SADNESS?

CLOSING: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT GOD TODAY?

1: ANGRY

A) WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN TO ME?

B) WHY CAN’T I HAVE THESE THINGS IN LIFE?

C) DOES GOD EVEN CARE ABOUT ME?

POINT: MANY TIMES WHEN WE GET DOWN AND EVEN FRUSTRATED OR ANGRY AT GOD IT’S BECAUSE WE ONLY FOCUS ON OURSELVES. OUR FOCUS SHOULD ON HIM. WE ALL HAVE QUESTIONS, WE ALL HAVE DOUBTS AND FEARS. WHEN WE FOCUS OUR ATTENTION ON GOD WE CAN SEE WHAT DOORS HE’S OPENED AND WHICH ONES HE’S CLOSED.

FINAL THOUGHT: REV 3:20 WHO’S BEEN TO YOUR DOOR LATELY? BE ANGRY AND SIN NOT, IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS YOU ANSWER THE DOOR WHEN JESUS IS THE ONE KNOCKING!!!

TWO FARMERS PRAY FOR RAIN ONE GOES AND PREPARES HIS FILEDS. WHICH IS FAITHFUL? WHICH ONE ARE YOU?
