Today I will be ministering on the fruit of the Spirit called temperance which is the 9th and last fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23
Temperance like all of the different fruits of the Spirit is an invaluable characteristic that we receive from Jesus Christ because we have his presence in our spirit. I Corinthians 6:19
Our part is to make a decision to allow these fruits of the Spirit to flow out of us to bless other people.
A person who has temperance has self-control, (the virtue of one who masters his desires and passions including his sensual appetites).
Having temperance in your life means that you do not let emotions or moments of self-gratification take over what you know is the right thing to do. You exercise control over you emotions, you do not let them run away with you.
An example of temperance or self-control would be to control anger so it does not get out of hand. Rage of course would be an extreme form of anger that is way over the line. Rage is a very dangerous emotion it is the thing that causes murders, rapes and a host of other passions that are of course a total lack of self-control.
Please share this website with others that you know.
Remember the Word of God will bless every person no matter who they are. God speaks to our hearts when we receive ministry from Him and He puts others people in our hearts and tells us to call or e mail that person because they need the Word of God also.
You never know what that friend or family member of yours is going through. The trauma and fear that they are experiencing. Reading and meditating on God’s Word delivers people that are in trauma, fear or confusion. There is tremendous Power in the Word of God. Hebrews 4:12
So please follow what the Spirit of the Living God is telling you and call up or e mail other people that you know so they too can receive the powerful Word of God in their lives.
That also includes the shut ins which includes people who are disabled or now are old and not able to come to a church building but still need ministering to just like you and me. So please give our website address to these people and see that they are blessed. Thank you.
