"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age…" (Titus 2:11-12a, NIV)
We didn't get the sermon audio recorded, so I'm providing my manuscript below. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Why do you think the Bible talks about this issue of self-control? Why does it matter?
I welcome your comments.
