Walking In The Spirit: Self-Control

By: James Downing | Posted: Apr 29, 2015

Galatians 5:22-26

 

ESV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

By: James Downing | Posted: Mar 19, 2015

  1. The Fruit of the Spirit is Longsuffering:

As with the other characteristics of the Fruit of the Spirit, the “first cause” of the Christian’s ability to be longsuffering is God.

In the “new birth” we are made partakers of the divine nature; we become possessors of the Spirit of God.

Galatians 5:16-26



ESV
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife,…

Ephesians 5:1-18

ESV

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who…
