Walking in Self-Control

Read Galatians 5:22-23 with 1Corinthians 9:24-27

The final virtue of the Fruit of the Spirit - Self-Control, is perhaps the most challenging. It is to be applied to all areas of our life: thoughts and intents of the heart, words and attitudes toward others, and all the appetites of the flesh - eating, drinking, sexual conduct, sleep, emotions, on and on. Yet, here we are not left to ourselves, but are given the Spirit to empower, and the constant care of our Saviour to give grace.
