Key Verse

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls
— Proverbs 25:28


Philippians 3:7-15

Without a willingness to discipline oneself, and bring thoughts and actions into conformity with the Word of God, one cannot be a disciple of Jesus. Self-discipline, then, must be practised not only by ministers and missionaries but by everyone who desires to make Heaven his home. This means more than just forsaking sin and sinful pleasures. It includes a willingness to develop oneself spiritually and to make sacrifices for the Lord and His work.
