Self-Control (1 Corinthians 9:24-27, 1 Corinthians 10:11-13)

David Duignan, March 20, 2016
Part of the Fruit of the Spirit series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Why do we do things we regret later? Why can't can't we control our tongues or our thoughts? Why is it so hard to turn from our urges and desires? This morning we look at self-control and how desperately we need it?

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

24Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25And 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. 26I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (KJV)

1 Corinthians 10:11-13

11Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 12Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (KJV)
