The Way To Self-Control – Realize That It Starts Within Ourselves.
The way to self-control starts from within ourselves. We can try the latest fad diets, smoking patches, and anger management classes, but these self-control fixes will not work until we realize that the fix is within ourselves and with God. Proverbs 25:28 tells us that people without self-control are like a city that is broken down without walls.
Proverbs 25:28, “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”
Jesus is the Way To Self-Control.
Many of us seek self-control, but Jesus is the only true way to self-control. He is the only human that has walked on this Earth and was perfect. Once we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, all we need to do is follow Jesus’ example in word and deed to be perfect – to have perfect self-control. Colossians 3:17 advises us to act in the name of Jesus in word and deed.
Colossians 3:17, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Christians Have A Higher Inspiration to Have Self-Control.
Christians have a higher inspiration to have self-control than an Olympic athlete. An Olympic athlete is inspired by the opportunity to win a gold medal. Many Olympic athletes train for the Olympics for years and they have great self-control and discipline. On the other hand, Christians have a greater inspiration to obtain and maintain self-control and not to sin. 1st Corinthians 9:25 advises us that Christians are inspired more than athletes to have self-control because Christians are striving for an eternal and incorruptible crown.
1 Corinthians 9:25, “And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.”
