Don’t Change Your Clock!

If you hate losing an hour of sleep you’ll love March 13th.
Breakfast at 10am, Worship at 11am!
It’s like not changing your clock!
That’s right! On March 13th at Bayside we’re moving our worship service back an hour.
  • If you want to sleep in, that’s OK!
  • If you want to come at 10 for breakfast, that’s OK.
  • If you forget to change your clock and show up at 10am old time, that’s OK! We’ve got you covered!
One more time: On March 13th you lose an hour of sleep by setting your clocks ahead one hour.
So we’re having breakfast at 10am (new time) and moving the worship service to 11am (new time) for this week only.
See you then!

Some thoughts on overcoming anger

Matthew 26:1-16

Peace: the calm assurance that what God is doing is best

  1. The beginnings of betrayal

Matthew 26:1-13

  1. The act of betrayal

Matthew 26:14-16

It began in his heart – James 1:13-15

It started small – John 12:4-6

It ended “out of control” – Matthew 27:3-5

Simon the leper was healed, the woman was Mary (John 12:3), the sister of Martha and Lazarus

Matthew 26:8 – indignant

– angry with

– a state of strong opposition and displeasure

Unhappy with Jesus, unhappy with GOD

I disagree, I’m disappointed – the opposite of peace

Perspective

  • Mary, the woman – eyes on Christ

Worship

The cost of true worship

  • Judas – eyes on the money

Rebuke

The greed of false compassion

  • Chief priests and elders – eyes on tradition/their view of religion

Hatred

The hypocrisy of empty ritual

  • The chief priests and elders

– we want to kill Jesus

  • Judas

– I want to get from Jesus

  • Mary

– I want to love and worship Jesus

What if I’m disappointed or angry with God?

Mike Philips – Questions to ask in life’s difficult moments

Depression: Who am I really angry at?

Anxiety: What do I think my planning will change

Paranoia: What can I verify as being totally real right now?

Loneliness: Who can I show love to?

Overcoming Anger

Anger is fueled by other emotions and factors such as fear, guilt, shame or pride: a sense of lacking control. Anger can be a control mechanism

Ephesians 4:22-24

Put on, put off, be renewed. All three!

Ephesians 4:26-27

Be angry and do not sin – put off the yelling, the hurtful words, the bullying, the sudden flash of emotions

Do not let the sun go down on your anger – put on reconciliation, forgiveness, kindness (stretch out passion), self control

Give no opportunity to the devil – be renewed – understand this as no one less than satan trying to divide and destroy. You are not helping you are hurting. You are not doing God’s will but the devil’s.

Proverbs 19:3

James 1:20
