Summary: This sermon deals with allowing Jesus to be Lord of our Emotions. It is a revision of Rick Warren;s Message in the 50 Days of Transformation Series. I strongly recommend the series for any church seeking to renew itself. Our church members loved it.

This sermon is a revision of Rick Warren's sermon on Emotional Health in the 50 Days of Transformation. The original sermon was much too long for our time frame of preaching during service. It was adapted somewhat to make room for palm Sunday as well. Rick Warren did a great job.


50 Days of Transformation – Part 4 (Emotional Health)

Pastor Rick 3/29/2015 Psalm 70:1-5 Luke 19:32-35

Let’s take a feeling test this morning. Let Me Ask this: What all did you feel yesterday. Who felt happy, sad, upset, angry, joyful, thankful, disappointed, depressed, jealous, ambitious, surprised, convicted, hopeful and who felt as though God wanted to use them to make a difference in someone’s life.

We’ve been looking during 50 Days of Transformation first at spiritual health. Then at physical health. Last week we looked at mental health.

This week we are going to look at emotional health. That is how to deal with how you feel. Last week we talked about how to manage your mind. Your thoughts. This week we are going to look at how to manage your emotions. Has anyone here ever had a change take place in your life because you didn’t keep your emotions in checkWe are going to look at what the Bible says about how to manage your emotions. How to deal with how you feel.

Mark 12:29-30 Jesus says this “The most important commandment is this, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind and all your strength.”

Do you understand the emotion involved in this passage. If this verse had said, you must love your favorite football team, or favorite singer, or favorite actor with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, what imagery comes to your mind. How are you going to act at the game, at the concert, or at the movie. Would people think you were a little radical, a little nuts.

God is saying, I want to have an emotional relationship with you, where you throw everything you have into it. God even complains when we don’t do it. He says, these people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Have you ever seen somebody do something, and though they did it right, you could tell their heart just wasn’t in it. God wants us to be emotionally involved in our relationship to him.


Let me give you some facts about your emotions before we get into this.

1. First, God has emotions.

Jesus was God in the flesh. Can you imagine all the emotions he went through on Palm Sunday. He was happy to see the people turn out in large numbers. He was thankful for the praises of the people. He was disappointed that the Pharisees could not see what was taking place.

He was angry that that religious leaders wanted him to silence the crowd. He was sad that the people didn’t understand their true need. He cried because he knew the destruction the Roman army would inflict on some of the people there. He felt rejection because he knew the cross was still less than a week away.
