Self-Control

June 25, 2017 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Fruit: It Does the Body Good

Self-Control

 

How do we cultivate the fruit of self-control?

Definitions

  • Self-control is about choice, not denial
  •         To what am I saying “yes?”
  • Self-control is more like a muscle than a fire-extinguisher
  •         With proper training, it can improve

 

3 Strategies for Cultivating Self-Control

  • Train Together (Ecc. 4.9-12)
  • Flee Temptation (2 Tim. 2.22, Mt. 6.13)
  • Focus on vocation, not temptation (Hb. 12.1-2)
  •         We tend to hit what we aim for
