Living by the Spirit: The Fruit of Self Control

Galatians 5:16-25; Proverbs 25:28; Titus 2:11-14                 November 22, 2015

God’s grace redeems us and God’s grace reforms us and God’s grace reforms when we give up the control of the self to the Spirit of God for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have been created by God with a multitude of moods, passions, and desires – and because we are saints who still sin as we still live in the shadow of the fall, all of our moods, passions and desires must be under control or they will end up controlling us. Our appetites and longings have their proper place only when they are first focused on God. It is by the grace of God that God offers us the Holy Spirit to take control of our hearts and lives!        Link for audio/video/manuscript
