Dr. Mike Ramsey - Pastor
Hello Friends,

Temperance
(2 Peter 1:6) “And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;”

We live in a time when most things are out of control. The problem with diets is temperance. The problem with obesity is with temperance. Drugs, alcohol, and almost every other problem is based on not being able to say enough is enough. We prefer buffets over portions. If we are honest, we are seldom satisfied.
According to Strong’s Concordance temperance means “self -control (especially continence): - temperance.” Thayer’s Definition: 1) self-control (the virtue of one who masters his desires and passions, especially his sensual appetites). The first mention is in (Acts 24:25), “And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” The other mention is in (Galatians 5:23), “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” Death to self is the first step to eternal life. One writer said temperance is moderation about worldly things.
