THE FRUIT BASKET SERIES

SELF-CONTROL

Pastor Steve Lummer

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-25 (niv)

The Holy Spirit works from the INSIDE OUT.

Each tree is recognized by its own fruit¦…The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. Luke 6:44,45 (niv)

 

WE CAN CHOOSE  TO LIVE AT THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS

SELF CONTROL – CRUISE CONTROL – OUT OF CONTROL

 

Moses refused the TEMPORAL for the ETERNAL.

By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter  25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season 11:24-25 (kjv)

 

David refused SELF APPOINTMENT for GOD’S TIMING.

and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. 4 The men said, “This is the day the LORD spoke of when he said  to you, ‘I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.’ ” Then David crept up unnoticed and cut off a corner of Saul’s robe. 1 Samuel 24: 1- 4 (nkjv)

 

Jesus refused SELFISH AMBITION for OUR SALVATION.

Who, being in very nature of  God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant,  being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself  and became obedient to death” even death on a cross! Philippians 2:5-8 (nkjv) 

save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”

Matthew 27:37- 40 (nkjv)

There is hope!
1. WE CAN BE SPIRIT FILLED.
2. WE CAN BE SPIRIT THRILLED.
3. WE CAN BE SPIRIT SPILLED.
