Word for the Week: Temperance

Roman 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Cor 3:16-17

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.


223 Add these things. Add temperance to it. Oh, temperance, how to answer in kindness when wrath is spoke to you. Somebody say, “You bunch of holy-rollers down there!” Don’t jump out and roll up your sleeves now. See? Not that. But talk with godly love, temperance, kindness. Is that the way you want to be? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] When you’re riled upon, rile not back. Let Him be your example.

He’s the Head and controls you. And your feet is the foundation, faith. Amen! Controlled by the Head, takes the…?…There you are. There is the perfect man of God, when he possesses these virtues.
