Self-Control or Holy Spirit Control (click to listen, right click to download)
The wise person knows how to stay calm, cool, and collected in difficult situations. But is this attribute a power of the mind, the heart, or just good training? In this message, Self-Control, or really Holy Spirit control, is contrasted with the behavior of a foolish person who acts impulsively and lashes out at others.
Self Control is really yielding and surrendering our hearts to the Holy Spirit, because Jesus has already taken upon himself the full force of humanity’s anger. Only because “he was numbered with the transgressors” can we have the inner resolve to not retaliate or lose control.
