NWMin Conference 2023
Resilience, Humble Anger, and Jesus' Courageous Love
Presenter: Sarah Sumner, Ph.D., MBA
Jesus was the most resilient person ever to live. Even after He died, He was so resilient that He raised Himself from the dead (John 10:18). Jesus was motivated to stay the course. Part of His motivation was fueled by anger. Did you know that the Gospels include almost twenty different stories about Jesus’ anger? Humble Jesus overturned the tables of the moneychangers in the temple, and gentle Jesus raged at the tomb of Lazarus. Jesus’ anger was a form of courageous love. You and I can learn to be angry like Jesus. We can also marvel that godly anger cures sinful anger. In this workshop, we will focus on Jesus and find out how His zeal flowed from His faith.
