In this short sermon, we are going to look at what the bible says about “be angry and sin not” as recorded in Ephesians 4:26.
As usual, let us outline the bible verse where we derive this sermon.
“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devilEphesians 4:26
Do not let anger cause you to sin.
In the natural sense of the word, anger will always cause one to sin because you can never tell what will become of your actions when you are angry.
Anger has led so many people to commit murder, several instances abound and one might have even happened near you.
But what the scripture is trying to tell us today is that you must not let anger cause you to sin.
What does the Bible say about be angry and sin not?
Now when the scripture tells us to be angry but sin not, it gets so complicated because as we said earlier anger will always cause one to sin.
But if you do research on all the crimes that have been committed because of anger, you will realize that the person kept the fault in his heart and schemed on how to take revenge.
That is to say, a greater amount of the crimes committed during anger are not instantaneous.
That is why the scripture added that we should not allow the sun to set with anger in our hearts.
So the trick is, if someone makes you angry, make sure you immediately put the incident off your mind so that it will not lead you into sin.
That is why the scripture added that we should not give way to the devil.
May God save us all in Jesus name. Amen.
