Self Discipline?

I get stacks of mail from young people who are struggling with sins of the flesh.  Recently, one was so bold as to suggest to me that God either didn’t exist or didn’t care about sins like masturbation since He (God) wouldn’t help him win the battle.  This is a lie.  Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior have all the power they need to defeat sin.  They also still have the incredibly strong desires of the flesh.  And so the battle rages.  The only question remaining is who wins the battle for your mind, and for your body?  Are you calling Jesus “Lord” and still allowing your flesh to call the shots in your life?  The Spirit of God is a Spirit of “power” of “love” and of “self-discipline.”  If you’re not receiving each of these in dramatic fashion, you’re still listening to the flesh.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline.”  2 Timothy 1:7

In Christ,
