For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
MOMS and Self-control
South MOMS was blessed to hear from speakers Kempton and Caryn Turner last Tuesday. Here are a few highlights from their message on Self-Control:
- Self-control is the ability to keep yourself from indulging in things that do not increase your joy in Christ and bring glory to Him.
- Self-control sets up a firewall around your heart, mind and home to help protect you from unholy, unhealthy pleasures and patterns that long to destroy you and your family. (Proverbs 25:28)
- Self-control is a fruit of the spirit. When you are saved, self-control takes up residence in your heart. Therefore, we are not self-controlled, but spirit-controlled. (Galatians 5:22-23)
- A self-controlled woman is disciplined with her tastes, her time, her thoughts, and her talk.
