All believers can have self control, as they obey the Lord over all,
In a sinful world filled with strife, this when we follow Jesus Christ,
Moved by His Word as we hear it, producing the fruit of the Spirit,
This, as we travel this earthly sod, convicted by The Spirit of God.
Throughout our life, as a whole, The Spirit can helps us to control,
Our own desires, within our life, through The Spirit of Jesus Christ,
Learning in our life to abstain, from fleshly desires in order to gain,
Spiritual wisdom in a world of sin, gained through The Spirit within.
Self control permits us to fulfill, not our own, but The Fatherís Will,
When The Holy Spirit controls us, we can focus on Godís purpose,
Guided and moved by His love, we purpose to live for God above,
This, when Godís Spirit controls us, to live in Godís Righteousness.
Self control comes through discipline, when we live our life for Him,
Our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, to live a life, which truly pleases,
The Father above, watching all, who demands from us, self control,
As weíve crucified our own desire, to live for God, spiritually higher.
As Godís divine nature we partake, earthly desires we must forsake,
As our whole life to Christ we give, a spirit filled life we need to live,
Walking not as in our former life, we live anew through Jesus Christ,
Putting off the old manís ways, while living for His honor and praise.
