[2Pe 1:4-8 NASB] 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of [the] divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in [your] moral excellence, knowledge, 6 and in [your] knowledge, self-control, and in [your] self-control, perseverance, and in [your] perseverance, godliness, 7 and in [your] godliness, brotherly kindness, and in [your] brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if these [qualities] are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” ―
One of the fruits produced by the life of Christ in us is a manifestation of love in the form of “Self Control”.
This is great truth and doctrine, but how do we get self control into our experience. How do we really control ourselves when people irritate us, when events disappoint us, when we are abused, when we are tempted to do wrong, when we don’t do what we should do, when we do what we should not do and when we pursue to dominate others.
Dr. Norman Wise will provide insight, practical tools, and life practices that can help us to begin bearing the fruit of the Spirit on a daily basis. Plan now to come to this time of training and equipping in this vital practice of soul that is foundational to success as an individual and in our relationships.
