Full Life: Self Control

2 Peter 2:5 by Art Stansberry
Series:Full Life

As we continue on in our series, "Full Life," the Apostle Peter says that we need to add to our faith the quality of self-control. Proverbs 25:28 says, "Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control." We live in a society that is constantly giving us the message to do what we want, to live however we want to live, or as Nike so aptly puts it, to "just do it." But this is not how the Lord would have us to live. There is a standard, a model, that we are to follow and that standard is Christ. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:1, "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." The only way that we can truly follow Christ is add to our faith, self-control. This Sunday we will learn that self-control takes discipline, it takes accountability, and it requires that we follow closely after Christ.
