It Came from Within - WRATH
Summary: Jesus told His disciples that the heart was the seat of man's sin - the root of the problem. It is very easy to speak of the problems of the world, or of someone else. However, there is a danger lurking within - a danger that you must address in Christ. Today we look at the sin of wrath. What is it? How do we recognize it? How do we deal with it as followers of Jesus?
Key Scripture (Psalm 37:8): Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
What is Wrath?
Wrath is strong vengeful hatred or resentment. It starts small and becomes a flood of destruction.

- Prepare yourself BEFORE (James 1:19-20)
- Replace it (Ephesians 4:31-32)
- The root (Matthew 6:33; Romans 12:19)
