There is one thing without which you cannot follow Jesus Christ, and you cannot do what is pleasing to Him, and that is SELF CONTROL. The whole world is in the power of the evil one, and most believers, who profess to be Christians are also in the power of satan, because they say that they cannot stop sinning.
Jesus Christ puts you in control, if you submit to Him. Jesus Christ sets you FREE, He makes you FREE. If the Son of God has set you free, you will be FREE and free indeed. You will be in control.
The fruit of the Spirit is SELF CONTROL. If you cannot control yourself then you are being controlled by others and by demons. Then you are out of control. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ will never control you, He guides you. But you have to be in control of your life in order to follow Jesus Christ, because you must make a constant decision all the time, to follow and obey Jesus Christ, and if you are being in controlled by your lusts, by other people, by demons, by influences from the outside, by fear, then you are a slave to those things. If you cannot stop sinning, you are a slave to sin, and you cannot follow Jesus Christ.
The wages of sin is death. Those who disobey Jesus Christ cannot please Him and they will perish.. You need to take control of your life or else you will end up in hell. You need to take control. You need to control yourself and listen to the Holy Spirit, go after Jesus Christ. You need to take control of yourself. You need to resist the devil and he will flee from you. You need to go after Jesus Christ every day to have salvation. But if you are not in control you are being controlled.
Obey Jesus Christ, repent of your sin, of your wickedness, turn away from evil, submit yourself to Jesus, be pure and be holy, control yourself, do what is pleasing to God, be baptized in the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Take control of yourself or you will end up in hell.
May Jesus bless you.
