The Fruit of the Spirit is self-control. This Sunday, we will focus on self-control as we finish our series through the Fruit of the Spirit. Self-control is the Holy Spirit enabled ability to exercise control over our whole being. We need the fruit of self-control because of our propensity to sin and because of Satan’s desire to destroy our lives. By God’s grace, let us grow in the fruit of self-control.
