"A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls."-Proverbs 25:28
Self-control...It’s not a flashy concept or an attractive idea, however, it is at the height of Christian virtue in a fallen world, and its exercise is quite simply one of the most difficult things you can ever learn to do.
Alongside love and godliness, self-control serves as a major summary term for Christian conduct. It includes our minds and our emotions — not just our outward actions, but also our internal state. It is not always about what we are running from but also what we are running towards.
True self-control is not about bringing our selves under our own control, but under the power of Christ that is, Spirit-lead. In Jesus, we have a source for true self-control far beyond that of our feeble selves.
