Scripture Romans 13:13 (Exegesis)www.biblegateway.com : 

Scripture Romans 13:13 (Exegesis)www.biblegateway.com Romans 13:13 ( AMPLIFIED VERSION )- Exegesis View commentary related to this passage below 13Let us live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly as in the [open light of] day, not in reveling (carousing) and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery (sensuality and licentiousness), not in quarreling and jealousy.   To temperance and sobriety. Four things are here taught, as a Christian's directory for his day's work. When to awake; Now; and to awake out of the sleep of carnal security, sloth, and negligence; out of the sleep of spiritual death, and out of the sleep of spiritual deadness. Considering the time; a busy time; a perilous time. Also the salvation nigh at hand. Let us mind our way, and mend our pace, we are nearer our journey's end. Also to make ourselves ready. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; therefore it is time to dress ourselves. Observe what we must put off; clothes worn in the night. Cast off the sinful works of darkness. Observe what we must put on; how we should dress our souls. Put on the armour of light. A Christian must reckon himself undressed, if unarmed. The graces of the Spirit are this armour, to secure the soul from Satan's temptations, and the assaults of this present evil world. Put on Christ; that includes all. Put on righteousness of Christ, for justification. Put on the Spirit and grace of Christ, for sanctification. The Lord Jesus Christ must be put on as Lord to rule you as Jesus to save you; and in both, as Christ anointed and appointed by the Father to this ruling, saving work. And how to walk. When we are up and ready, we are not to sit still, but to appear abroad; let us walk. Christianity teaches us how to walk so as to please God, who ever sees us. Walk honestly as in the day; avoiding the works of darkness. Where there are riot and drunkenness, there usually are chambering and wantonness, and strife and envy. Solomon puts these all together, Pr 23:29 to 35. See what provision to make. Our great care must be to provide for our souls: but must we take no care about our bodies? Yes; but two things are forbidden. Perplexing ourselves with anxious, encumbering care; and indulging ourselves in irregular desires. Natural wants are to be answered, but evil appetites must be checked and denied. To ask meat for our necessities, is our duty, we are taught to pray for daily bread; but to ask meat for our lusts, is provoking God, Ps 78:18.

Scriptures 1 Cor.9:24-7 (Exegesis)www.biblegateway.com : 

1 Cor 9:24-27 ( AMPLIFIED VERSION )     24Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours.     25Now every athlete who goes into training conducts himself temperately and restricts himself in all things. They do it to win a wreath that will soon wither, but we [do it to receive a crown of eternal blessedness] that cannot wither.     26Therefore I do not run uncertainly (without definite aim). I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary.     27But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit]. www.e-sword.net G1467 ἐγκρατεύομαι egkrateuomai eng-krat-yoo'-om-ahee Middle voice from G1468; to exercise self restraint (in diet and chastity): - can([-not]) contain, be temperate. Scriptures 1 Cor.9:24-7 (Exegesis)www.biblegateway.com

Matthew Henry Commentarywww.biblegateway.com : 

Matthew Henry Commentary ( 1 Cor 9 Exegesis ) He did all this, with care and diligence, in view of an unfading crown. The apostle compares himself to the racers and combatants in the Isthmian games, well known by the Corinthians. But in the Christian race all may run so as to obtain. There is the greatest encouragement, therefore, to persevere with all our strength, in this course. Those who ran in these games were kept to a spare diet. They used themselves to hardships. They practised the exercises. And those who pursue the interests of their souls, must combat hard with fleshly lusts. The body must not be suffered to rule. The apostle presses this advice on the Corinthians. He sets before himself and them the danger of yielding to fleshly desires, pampering the body, and its lusts and appetites. Holy fear of himself was needed to keep an apostle faithful: how much more is it needful for our preservation! Let us learn from hence humility and caution, and to watch against dangers which surround us while in the body. Matthew Henry Commentarywww.biblegateway.com

Conclusion and further study : 

Self-control in the bible is purposive and active in terms of self-mastery and dominion. We are self-controlled with the goal and purpose in mind and heart of becoming transformed in to an overcomer as is our King Jesus in all our ways. If we serve God as King then we will become Christlike and this self-control will be an evidence of this Christlike trait in us- even if we stumble at times in sin or error and are for a time overtaken with a vice- we will struggle with such and we will prevail as overcomers as is our Lord. The Holy Spirit within every believer leads and guides us in to all truth and away from the lures and entrapments of sin and towards transformation in to powerful warriors and overcomers in the Lord. This is called sanctification once a believer is saved by Jesus Christ by grace and saving faith through true repentance. It will be from then on realized through obedience and God brings correction through providence to ensure this overcoming will happen in all true believers- so that we are autonomous and self-mastery is evident just like our Lord- dependent only on Him and by His Word- we become increasingly like Him. That is- self-controlled but not just this- overcomers of sin from within, satan, the world in Jesus Christ and by His Power from the Holy Spirit leading us from within to whom now we belong, move and have our very being.
