Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

fountains of Living Water

I used to have a problem with the term self-control
as mentioned in the Bible when the Bible also inferred
that we should “die to self”… giving the Lord full control.

Instead of “self-control” which implies we are in charge,
I have come to believe that we should practice
“control of self”
implying that we should seek not to be in charge
but instead seek surrender of self to the control of the Holy Spirit.

To me, at least, there is a difference… a big difference.

Give control of your life to God
and let the fountains of Living Water
gush forth in a spectacular display
from the Holy Spirit within you.
