Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Self-control) – Divine Discipline for Becoming Godly - Friday, May 31st

Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Self-control) – Divine Discipline for Becoming Godly - Friday, May 31st

Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:7B-8

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Today's passage uses the word godliness. What better word than this one to capture the essence of our series. The whole idea of the fruit of the Spirit is godliness. Godliness refers to a person being like God. When the fruit of the Spirit is manifested in our lives we are being like God. Godliness is all about living a fruitful life. Notice our passage says, "Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness." Discipline and self-control are the same thing. We said yesterday that self-control is the key to our having a steady involvement with the fruits of the Spirit that actually results in them being manifested in our lives over the long haul. Steady self-control and discipline are absolutely essential for the journey of having a godly, fruitful life.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, this business of self-control seems a bit tricky. Please keep me from merely trying to keep myself under control. Grant me the discipline necessary to keep relying on you to transform my life into a godly, fruitful one. Show me how to steadily tend my life in ways that blend with all you are doing to make me more like you. Amen!

The exact values for vardenafil ODT (Staxyn) stimulate not been reported,
just this drug provides a higher systemic photograph compared with the film-coated formulation (Levitra).
For this reason, these two formulations are non same milligram for milligram and consequently
are not standardized. In addition, despite the perceptual experience
that an ODT preparation would submit burden to a greater extent quickly, both the film-coated tablets and the ODT formulation let standardized
onsets of execute.
