Self-Control, A Forgotten Skill

Temperance, Temperate [Noun]

enkrateia from kratos, "strength," occurs in Acts 24: 25; Gal. 5: 23; 2 Pet. 1: 6 (twice), in all of which it is rendered "temperance;" the RV marg., "self-control" is the preferable rendering, as "temperance" is now limited to one form of self-control; the various powers bestowed by God upon man are capable of abuse; the right use demands the controlling power of the will under the operation of the Spirit of God; in Acts 24: 25 the word follows "righteousness," which represents God's claims, self-control being man's response thereto; in 2 Pet. 1: 6, it follows "knowledge," suggesting that what is learned requires to be put into practice.
