Scripture:

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

Scripture:  Colossians 3:12 - 17(NRSV)

12 As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13 Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

 

 

 

 

"When Mercy Found Me"

I can't count the broken roads I've been down
But all I know
Something had to give
Something had to give

'Cause living my life so wild and free
Finally caught up
Oh it left me broken, left me hopeless
But that's where I met Jesus

And in one moment everything changed
Who I was got washed away
When mercy found me

My Savior's arms were open wide
And I felt love for the very first time
When mercy found me
When mercy found me

All those days and all those doubts
They don't seem to matter now
His grace is all I need
Oh, His grace is all I need

And the chains that I was in before
They don't hold me anymore
His love has rescued me
Oh, His love has set me free

And in one moment everything changed
Who I was got washed away
When mercy found me

My Savior's arms were open wide
And I felt love for the very first time
When mercy found me

My mind found peace
My soul found hope
My heart found a home

And in one moment everything changed
Who I was got washed away
When mercy found me

My Savior's arms were open wide
And I felt love for the very first time
When mercy found me

           

Anger Management: God Help Me?!

Your New Self

February 22, 2015

 

Warm Up:

How do you respond to this statement: "I don't consider myself an angry person but I realize that I get angry more than I would like"?

What kinds of things make you angry?

What has been your revelations through this series on anger management?

 

Diving In:

 

1) In the reading from Colossians 3:12-17 what strikes you as significant in Paul's words here? What is most helpful for you in thinking of how God might help you "manage your anger"?

 

2) What is your response to the questions "Is it ok to be angry with God?"

 

3) Rob Bell in his book "The Zimzum of Love: A new Way of Understanding Marriage" offers the idea of a scorecard that we all keep that can be a source of anger when we feel the score is lopsided. How is this concept helpful? Who do you keep score with - even unconsciously? What kinds of things are on your scorecard?

 

4) The way of Jesus offers us new life as his Spirit comes to live in us. It allows us to do things that we just wouldn't be able to do on our own. It's not about just working or trying harder. It's about God in us. This kind of transforming work is part of the path towards replacing anger, judgment and bitterness with love, compassion, kindness and patience. Which of the following ways are most important for you to living this way and allowing God to be at work in you?

  • Power of Prayer
  • Scripture
  • Granting Forgiveness

Take Home:

Use the recipe card you were given today to name a person or situation where anger arises because you keep score - maybe even without even realizing it. Tear up the card as a sign of getting rid of the scorecard and beginning God's work of reconciliation.
