22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and SELF-CONTROL, Paul says all these are fruits of the spirit. They continually are qualities to live by and would make the world a much better place to live in. But, to obtain these qualities, the most important of all is self-control. Learning to control sexual urges, control anger, not be selfish, stop drugs and alcohol, not steal, not lie, not argue, when a simple smile would diffuse a situation. These are the learned actions or responses of self-control. And only Jesus can give that kind of self-control. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and allow JESUS to give you the self-control that allows you to continue in a walk that is pleasing to JESUS!!
