If he could not make me angry, he was angry. When he succeeded in making me angry, there was a look of satisfaction on his face. He had convinced himself that he did not need my Jesus. He convinced himself that the peace I had with the Lord was not real. Anger also breaks the fellowship between me and those who obey the Lord, even when the anger is not directed at them. They are commanded to make no friendship with me. Anger is no friend of mine or yours. It is not the fruit of the Spirit.
