The Yes and No of Self-Control

Titus 2:11-14

"(11) For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. (12) And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, (13) while we look forward with hope to that wonderful fay when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. (14) He gave His life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us His very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds."
