“Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly. . .” (Numbers 20:11)
COMMENT: You know the story. God told Moses to speak to the rock and it would yield water to the complaining Israelites. Because of this act of intemperance, God did not allow him to enter the Promised Land. Although we Christians have a better Covenant, when there is a lack of self-control in our lives, God’s ability to use us is diminished. Paul tells us to habitually put to death the evil deeds prompted by the body.(Romans 8:13)  In 1Cor. 9:27 we are admonished to buffet our body (discipline it by hardship) and subdue it. Gene’s translation: “Make a decision that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, you will ENSLAVE your body and enforce necessary restraints on its desires. Your spirit man is the master and your body the slave.”
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Proverbs 15:10  Galatians 5:22,23 and 1 Peter 2:8
WISE SAYING: GIVE THE DEVIL AN INCH AND HE’LL BE A RULER.
Just a thought, not a sermon.
