It’s A Heart Issue, Part 2, Matthew 5:22a

Matthew 5:22a (NKJV): But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment.
Anger is one of those emotions that can be good or bad. Ephesians 4:27 (NKJV): In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
It can be good in the sense that it can motivate us to bring change. There is a good anger that we, should have, when we see an injustice. It is something that can institute something to bring others to move in a way to bring a change to stop something that could bring harm to others or even us. This is something that we do need to be careful on how we act. In Fact, this is the type of anger that God used to bring about Salvation for us all through Jesus.
There is a bad anger. This is the type that Jesus is referring to here. This is the type that can cause us to rage for no apparent reason. This is the one that cause a lot of abuse and domestic situations. This is the one that causes murder to occur. We are warned to be careful of this type of anger.
Jesus warned that if we use anger in a warn way, the type that creates a hatred for someone, that it can create a darkness in our hearts. He warned here to not allow this type of anger to fester in our hearts.
If we are dealing with this type of anger, now is the time to Repent. Ask Him for Forgiveness and ask Him to change your heart. Don’t allow this to affect who He is changing you to become. This is a serious matter to Him and will affect your walk and Relationship with Him.
Is anger a sin in your life? Change your heart by serving those who you may be holding anger against. Don’t expect anything in return from them. Just serve them with the Kindness and Love that Jesus showed us. You may get strange replies or mocking. Let it go and see what happens.
We will continue  be looking at the Sermon on The Mount. Although,  we need Jesus to bring us back into A Relationship with God The Father, The Sermon on The Mount deals with Heart Issues which is what we should look at when learning to have that Relationship with God.
If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.

It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it.

We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already. If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know.

Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance. If you find yourself in need of prayer and/or encouragement, please, feel free to call or text +1 (505) 600-1027 or email
