Temperance


Then said Jesus unto His disciples,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross and follow me.

Matthew 16:24



Knowing this,
that our old man is crucified with Him,
that the body of sin might be destroyed,
that henceforth we should not serve sin...
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin,
but alive unto God
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:6 and 11



...But God, who is rich in mercy,
for His great love wherewith He loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins,
hath quickened us together with Christ,
(by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together,
and made us sit together
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:4-6

 

If then you were raised with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:1-3




I am crucified with Christ;
nevertheless I live;
yet not I but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20



...Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41



And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh
with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit,
let us also walk in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:24, 25



What? 
Know ye not that your body is
the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God,
and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price:
therefore glorify God in your body,
and in your spirit,
which are God's.

1 Corinthians 6:19, 20



This I say then, Walk in the Spirit,
and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit,
and the Spirit against the flesh:
and these are contrary the one to the other:
so that ye cannot do the things ye would.

Galatians 5:16, 17



...Do you not know that
to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey,
you are that one's slaves whom you obey?
whether of sin to death
or of obedience to righteousness?

Romans 6:16



Let  not sin therefore reign in your mortal body,
that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof...
For sin shall not have dominion over you:
for ye are not under the law but under grace.

Romans 6:12 and 14



For if ye live after the flesh ye shall die:
but if ye through the Spirit
do mortify the deeds of the body,
ye shall live.

Romans 8:13



...It's not by might nor power
but by my Spirit,
saith the Lord of Hosts.

Zechariah 4:6



For God hath not given us the Spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7
