“Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Continuing with key words of winning for God, Bro. Jeff takes tonight’s word “direction” and describes the path of the believer, what it is, what it isn’t.
If you’ve been made new and alive, why would you want to hang on to the old and dead? Paul tells us that believers still battle with our sinful nature; Bro. Jeff explains how allowing the Holy Spirit to control pleases God and avoids misery and destruction.
Temperance is more than self-control. We’re learning about this fruit of the Spirit, including some key words that provide understanding and instruction on how this fruit grows in the life of a Christian. Previously, Bro. Jeff discussed “danger” and “deprive.” Learn about the third key word “death” and the Bible’s hit list.
There are two ways of living: in the flesh with the consequences of misery, or in the Spirit where we can enjoy peace. Some Bibles translate the ninth fruit of the Spirit as “self-control,” but Bro. Jeff explains how “temperance” is much more.
This time of year many people make resolutions which typically involve gaining control of some area of their lives. In this timely and practical message, Bro. Jeff gives a very thorough, Biblical explanation of many areas where we lack self-control, the consequences of our lack of self-discipline, and the hope we have in our Helper.
