This is a brief snack to aid in getting to know the meaning of ‘temperance’. The ASV in 1901 was the first to translate egkrateia as ‘self-control’ in Galatians 5:23. Since that time modern translators have done the same. However, this lesson will focus on temperance as found in the King James Version and the early modern English Bibles.
The most rewarding aspect of using self-control for me is knowing that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, I can change any bad habit through discipline. God makes it possible when we trust Him enough to let Him help us. Let God help you take control of your mind, your actions, and your life.
