But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, SELF-CONTROL; against such things there is no law.
This is our final fruit we are looking at. Many people want to leave it to God or blame God from making decisions or turning away from temptation instead of taking the responsibility that is theirs. SELF means YOU; CONTROL means YOU have the ability to change what you want to change. We do it all the time. SELF-CONTROL makes a CHOICE. We can choose to walk in all the other fruit or we can CHOOSE not to. We can CHOOSE to turn away from sin or we can choose not to. We can choose to obey God's commands or we can choose not to. We can say no to that second helping of food. We can say no to spending money on that game. We can say no to stealing or lying. Again, SELF-CONTROL makes a CHOICE! SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
