Dear Friends,

The sixth commandment in the Decalogue (or the Ten Commandments) is one of the shortest and says in Deuteronomy 5:17 (NLT) “You must not murder." It condemns the deliberate, malicious, and unlawful taking of life. That is straight forward. Yet we are confronted everyday with the "cheapness of life" in this world.  We can become numb to it. But life is very sacred to the author of life, our Lord, who gives life as a gift. 

Most people think there is nothing wrong in getting angry. Getting it off our chest so to speak. The bible does say in Ephesians 4:26 (NKJV) "“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath". That is taken from Psalm 4:4 (NKJV), where it says "Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still." How are we doing with that? It certainly puts some key boundaries (including length of time) on any so called "righteous anger" against another. 

Jesus goes to the heart of the problem in the Sermon on the Mount by saying if anger controls and dominates our relationship with another we have to deal with it very quickly or we will give the devil a foothold in our lives (Matthew 5:22, Ephesians 4:26). Any sin cherished and nurtured can lead to horrendous consequences for us and others. The answer is Jesus and letting His forgiveness of the cross and His life of the resurrection be in us through the Holy Spirit. That new life given to us by the Holy Spirit is very sacred. Then we can strive to say with the Apostle Paul, "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21 NKJV)

Our services this Sabbath are listed below, both at the Great Yarmouth Church and the Lowestoft Church. Zoom and Facebook will be live-streamed from the Great Yarmouth Church. Steven George will be speaking at Great Yarmouth.
