Who Is In Control?

October 6, 2019

Now we are going to talk about the final fruit of the spirit, which is self- control. If there is any fruit on the list where all of us are sometimes lacking, even the most disciplined of us, it would be this fruit. Whether you’ve eaten too much food, spent too much money, wasted too much time, or asked too many questions, there’s some aspect of self-control we all struggle with. Thankfully, if you have accepted Christ and acknowledged that God is in control of you, then you can begin to learn to control yourself.

Tasty

In this series, we are going to take a closer look at the fruit of the Spirit we should be bearing as followers of Christ. Now, you might be asking, “Why does God want us to bear fruit?” He wants us to bear fruit because He wants our lives to be tasty. In other words, He wants us to live lives that are so attractive that people are drawn to us like a hungry man is drawn to a plate of good food. The Lord wants us to live lives that are both good to others and good for others, and we do that by living according to the Fruit of the Spirit.

Bible Reference

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,
envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
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 walk by the Spirit.
