#24 Believe - Temperance

September 3, 2017 • Mike Matijevich • Titus 2:11-13

KEY QUESTION: How does God free me from addictions and sinful habits? Temperance: “the dominion which one has over oneself or something…, the dominion that one has over his thoughts, words, and actions.” You have temperance when you are able to DO what you intend to DO and resist what you don’t want to do. TEMPERANCE may not be a natural tendency of yours. But it is a supernatural one. That’s the key. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22–23) KEY IDEA: I have the power through Christ to get myself under control. Christ in me is the power that gets myself under control.
