Hi friend (s), hope that your day is going awesome. I will be talking about self-control and how that this so important in the Christian lifestyle. Before I discuss about this topic, there is a scene from Star Trek (2009) that you will need to view. Let me set up the story of the clip. Earlier in the movie, Spock lost his mother and his home planet of Vulcan at the hands of Nero. Spock then maroons Kirk for insubordination and Kirk meets up with Spock Prime, who tells him a way to emotionally compromise Spock.
The way that Spock resigns his commission as captain to Kirk is the same way that God wants us to be in our lives. He wants us to put down our desires, control of our lives to Him, and to follow in step with His plans and purpose for us. I would like to end this post with a Bible verse from 1 Peter 1:13 (NIV): “Therefore, prepare your minds in action, keep sober in Spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Thank you so much for reading and have an amazing day. Please comment and reblog this post. I would also like to say thank you to Craig for your feedback and assistance.
