Self Control: Focus for Fruit of the Spirit to Flow

And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

(1 Corinthians 6:11 AKJV)


Sometimes we believers just need to be reminded that we are not who we used to be. The devil wants to get us back into a trap of old behaviors. He’ll connive through criticism, amplifying the past or a recent mistake, comparing you with other “perfect” believers, and even dropping thoughts into your mind out of nowhere.

Don’t give him your time. Instead, choose to remember what Jesus has done for you. What you were has been washed away as far as the east is from the west. It is just as if you’d never done it because of the name of the Lord Jesus and the Spirit of God.

Be blessed by His perfect work today, Beloved Sons and Daughters of God, and thankful that He’s still your wonderful Savior.
