Fruit of the Spirit: Self Control


When we lose control …
It’s not always easy. We have our wants and desires. We have our emotions. Sometimes we get really, really hurt and upset when somebody says something mean, and we react instinctively. Sometimes we really, really want that last cookie or Pringles chip, and it’s hard to stop.
Just like a lion naturally wants to prowl the jungle or roar at a human, our natural self (our sin nature) wants to do bad stuff sometimes. Also, there are some good things that we should do, that our natural self just doesn’t want to do. Again, it takes self-control to do the right things that we are supposed to do. So if we try to control our self by ourselves, it’s very likely that we may fail. We have to learn to allow the Holy Spirit to control us. That’s the way to have self-control.
When the Holy Spirit is in control, I have self-control.

God gives us self-control
Remember, the Fruit of the Spirit is self-control. Fruit means it is the natural result of something — having the Spirit of God in us.
When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we have His Holy Spirit in us.
2 Timothy 1:7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. This means, when we are walking with God and looking to him for guidance, God’s power and love are in our heart and he will help us use self-control when we need to.
Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age … The word grace means “what we do not deserve.” Grace does not mean we can live however we like without caring about others or what God says. Grace is what God gives us so we have the power to make the right choice in every situation. Grace is the reason we can exercise self-control and have all of the fruit of the spirit in our lives.
As we allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, instead of our “self”, He helps us to exercise self-control in our thoughts, words and actions.
When the Holy Spirit is in control, I have self-control.

Fruit of the Spirit: Gentleness


Jesus is gentle to us
In Matthew 11:29, Jesus tells us that he is gentle and humble in heart. When we find it difficult to handle our problems, we can go to him anytime. Jesus takes our cares and burdens upon his strong shoulders.
Jesus says, in Revelations 3:20“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me”. He did not say he will bang the door or knock down the door down if we did not open it.
Although God is so powerful and strong, he treats us gently. He lets us choose whether we want to follow him and do what he says. But the Holy Spirit lives in us and he speaks to us gently, in a still, small voice. He reminds us that we are righteous (because Jesus has given us his righteousness and removed our sin) and guides us to choose what is good.

We can be gentle
Remember, we have Jesus in us. He is the vine, and we are the branches. If He is gentle, we can be gentle to others too.
Ephesians 4:2 says, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love”.

Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness


God is faithful
The Bible is full of descriptions of God’s faithfulness — He is abounding in it, His faithfulness reaches to the heavens, faithfulness surrounds Him, His faithfulness lasts through generations etc.
God shows His faithfulness in Jesus who was willing to go all the way for us — even to die on the cross for us.

God is faithful even when we cannot see
Sometimes when we face problems and challenges, we think God has abandoned us. But He is always there.
2 Thes 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
Sometimes God doesn’t act the way we want Him to. But that doesn’t mean He is unfaithful. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego understood that. That’s why they said,“Even if our God does not deliver us, we will not worship other gods.”

God is faithful even when we are unfaithful.
2 Tim 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
Yes, we fail. Yes, we fall. Yes, we do bad things and wrong things. But God is faithful and He never changes. His covenant is with Jesus, and Jesus never changes. So our relationship in Him is always secure.

God is faithful to keep us faithful to Him
And the best thing is, God is the one who keeps us faithful in Him. It’s the work of His Holy Spirit who lives in us! God keeps us in His faithfulness.
Imagine a young child having to carry a glass of water without spilling a drop. It may seem difficult and challenging or even impossible. But God is like the parent whose hands are also on the cup to prevent it from falling.
1 Corinthians 1:8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5:24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness


God is good

God IS good. He doesn’t just do good things. But His very nature is good. So He cannot be bad. Jesus is God.
When a rich young man called Jesus “Good teacher”, Jesus answered Him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good — except God alone.” (Mark 10:18). That was Jesus’ way of telling the young man that He IS God. And God is good!
All of us were born with a sin nature. Sin is not doing what God tells us to do. Sin is bad. On our own, we could never become good. On the cross, Jesus took all our sin, all our bad. And in exchange, He gave us all His goodness so we can be truly good. Jesus took all our bad so we can have all His goodness!

We don’t do good to be good.
We do good because Jesus made us good! Zacchaeus was a cheat and traitor when Jesus went to his house. Jesus didn’t wait for Zacchaeus to be a good boy first before He became His friend. But because Jesus’ goodness transformed Zacchaeus, he was able to do the right thing, the good thing.
If we have received Jesus into our lives, Jesus’ goodness is in us. He has taken away our sin, our badness. We are now Jesus boys and girls — so we are GOOD boys and girls! And we can do the right things, the good things.

Jesus’ goodness follows us always
Jesus is also our GOOD shepherd — the one who takes care of us, His sheep. And when we follow Jesus, Jesus’ goodness and love follows us too … all the days of our life.
“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6)
