Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 4:26


4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not - That is, if ye are angry, take heed ye sin not. Anger at sin is not evil; but we should feel only pity to the sinner. If we are angry at the person, as well as the fault, we sin. And how hardly do we avoid it. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath - Reprove your brother, and be reconciled immediately. Lose not one day. A clear, express command. Reader, do you keep it?

    This verse instructs us to love one another and not to back bite and gossip. To grow in love as children of GOD.
  • Patricia
    Chapter 4:25, says not to give foot to the devil, through evil. So, we must take heed to everything contrary to truth; not walking as children being tossed to and fro by every doctrine. God's word is truth, so we must follow and obey God's words in our heart, mind and conciousness from what we learn from our Bibles.

    Scripture supports the idea that there is only one Supreme God. God is above all so God would not be equal to anyone or anything.
