Let's Be Real: Self-control
We continue in our series “Let’s Be Real: Growing through Life’s Challenges” as we tackle the topic “Self-control”. Self- control is one of the fruits (or evidences) of the Holy Spirit directing our lives and our choices. Because of our sin nature, it is a constant spiritual battle to say “no” to our flesh and sin, and say “yes” to choices that please God. However, because we are born- again believers in Christ, we now have the power to exercise self-control and conquer sin, more and more. A consistent lifestyle of loving thoughts and actions requires the nudging and empowering of the Holy Spirit, but it is totally possible to keep maturing until Christ returns for us. In fact, that is God’s will for us in Christ Jesus!
