1 9/29/2018 PRIDE ANGER ENVY GREED GREED SLOTHFULNESS GLUTTONY LUST Philippians 3:17 3:17 21 (NIV) 17 Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those th who h li live according di to t the pattern we gave you. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in th their i shame. h Their Th i mind i d iis on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will ill ttransform f our llowly l bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. 1

2 THE WHOLE WORLD REDUCED TO 6 PEOPLE : 1 would have an EXTRAVAGANT amount of FOOD. 3 would have an ADEQUATE amount of FOOD 2 would have just A BOWL OF RICE! 40,000 people DIE EVERY DAY as a result of STARVATION ; 75% of those being CHILDREN!! The COST of an AVERAGE RESTAURANT MEAL in the United States, t EXCEEDS the MONTHLY INCOME of about 35% of the PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!! What is SO BAD about engaging in a LITTLE GLUTTONY, anyway? It s NOT one of the BAD SINS, like ADULTERY or STEALING. We wouldn t do THAT!! All gluttony DOES is make you SOFT and HUGGABLE. Fredicka Matthews Green, Writer for Christianity Today 2

3 EXTERNAL DIMENSIONS are NO PREDICTOR of INTERNAL REBELLION! WISE TEMPERAMENT of the STOMACH is a DOOR to ALL VIRTUES. RESTRAIN the STOMACH and you will ENTER PARADISE, but if you PLEASE and PAMPER your STOMACH you will HURL YOURSELF OVER the PRECIPICE of BODILY IMPURITY into the FIRE of WRATH and FURY! You will COARSEN and DARKEN your MIND, and in THIS WAY you will RUIN your POWERS of ATTENTION, SELF CONTROL, and SOBRIETY! 19th Century Russian Monk SELF CONTROLLED Between the AGES of 20 and 50 the AVERAGE PERSON, in America, spends about 20,000 HOURS, or OVER 800 DAYS, just EATING!! 40% of the RESPONDENTS said that GETTING FAT was what they FEARED MOST in the world! On ANY given DAY, approximately 65 MILLION AMERICANS are DIETING!! Luke 7:34, The Son Of Man came EATING and DRINKING. And, they said, Here s a GLUTTON and a DRUNKARD; a friend of TAX COLLECTORS, and SINNERS. 3

4 Proverbs 23:1 3, 3, When you sit down to DINE with a ruler, note well what is before you, and put a knife to your throat, if you are given to GLUTTONY. Do not crave his delicacies for that food is deceptive. Proverbs 30:21 23, 23, Under three things the earth TREMBLES; under four it CANNOT BEAR UP: a servant who becomes king, and a FOOL who is FULL OF FOOD. An unloved woman who is married, and a maidservant who displaced her mistress. Proverbs 20:1, WINE is a MOCKER, and BEER a BRAWLER; whoever is LED ASTRAY by them is NOT WISE. 4

5 Ephesians 5:18, Do not get DRUNK on wine, which leads to DEBAUCHERY! Be FILLED with THE SPIRIT! WHAT is GLUTTONY and why is it DANGEROUS? _ 1.) It is MAKING FOOD or DRINK, more important, than OBEYING GOD, or SPENDING TIME with Him. 1 Corinthians 6:12 13, 13, Everything is PERMISSIBLE for me, but not everything is BENEFICIAL. Everything is PERMISSIBLE for me, but I will NOT BE MASTERED by anything. Food for the stomach, and the stomach for food, but God will DESTROY them BOTH! The body is NOT MEANT for SEXUAL IMMORALITY, but FOR THE LORD, and The Lord for the body. WHAT is GLUTTONY and why is it DANGEROUS? _ 1.) It is MAKING FOOD or DRINK, more important, than OBEYING GOD, or SPENDING TIME with Him. 2.) It is TURNING TO A SUBSTITUTE to SUPPLY our EMOTIONAL NEEDS. Philippians 4:19, And, my God, will MEET ALL YOUR NEEDS, according to His GLORIOUS RICHES in Christ Jesus. 5

6 IT IS MY CONVICTION THAT A VERY LARGE PART OF MANKIND S ILLS, AND OF THE WORLD S MISERY, IS DUE TO THE RAPID PRACTICE OF TRYING TO FEED THE SOUL WITH THE BODY S FOOD. WHAT is GLUTTONY and why is it DANGEROUS? _ 1.) It is MAKING FOOD or DRINK, more important, than OBEYING GOD, or SPENDING TIME with Him. 2.) It is TURNING TO A SUBSTITUTE to SUPPLY our EMOTIONAL NEEDS. 3.) It is the sin of being PREOCCUPIED with a TEMPORARY STATE of our PHYSICAL BEING. It s FIXATING on the PHYSICAL. Philippians 3:17 19, 19, Dear brothers, and sisters, PATTERN YOUR LIVES after mine, and LEARN from those who follow our example. For, I told you often before, and I say it AGAIN, with tears in my eyes, that there are MANY, whose conduct shows they are really ENEMIES of the cross of Christ. Their FUTURE is ETERNAL DESTRUCTION! Their God is their APPETITE! They brag about shameful things, and all they think about is THIS LIFE here on earth. 6

7 WHAT is GLUTTONY and why is it DANGEROUS? _ 1.) It is MAKING FOOD or DRINK, more important, than OBEYING GOD, or SPENDING TIME with Him. 2.) It is TURNING TO A SUBSTITUTE to SUPPLY our EMOTIONAL NEEDS. 3.) It is the sin of being PREOCCUPIED with a TEMPORARY STATE of our PHYSICAL BEING. It s FIXATING on the PHYSICAL. 4.) It seems to be a GATEWAY to other things IN EXCESS. Galatians 5:19 21, The acts of the SINFUL NATURE are obvious: SEXUAL IMMORALITY, IMPURITY, and DEBAUCHERY, IDOLATRY, WITCHCRAFT, HATRED, DISCORD, JEALOUSY, FITS OF RAGE, SELFISH AMBITION, DISSENSIONS, FACTIONS, and ENVY, DRUNKENNESS, ORGIES, and the like. I WARN YOU, as I did BEFORE, that t those who LIVE LIKE THIS, will NOT INHERIT The Kingdom Of God! Galatians 5:22 23, But, THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT, is LOVE; it is JOY; it is PEACE; it is PATIENCE; it is KINDNESS; it is GOODNESS; it is FAITHFULNESS; it is GENTLENESS; it is SELF CONTROL. Against such things there is no law. 7

8 WHAT CAN WE DO to IMPROVE this AREA of our life? 1.) Seek to GLORIFY GOD in our BODY! 1 Corinthians 6:19 20, Do you NOT KNOW that your BODY is a TEMPLE of The Holy Spirit, Who is IN YOU; Whom you have RECEIVED FROM GOD! You are NOT YOUR OWN, you were BOUGHT AT A PRICE, therefore HONOR GOD with your BODY! WHAT CAN WE DO to IMPROVE this AREA of our life? 1.) Seek to GLORIFY GOD in our BODY! 2.) Seek to LIVE a BALANCED LIFESTYLE! Proverbs 3:7 8, Do NOT be WISE in your OWN EYES. FEAR THE LORD, and SHUN EVIL. This will bring HEALTH to your BODY, and NOURISHMENT to your BONES. 8

9 Daniel 1:8, But, Daniel RESOLVED NOT to DEFILE HIMSELF with the royal food, and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission NOT TO DEFILE HIMSELF this way. Daniel 1:12 13, Please TEST your servants for ten days. Give us NOTHING but VEGETABLES to eat, and WATER to drink. Then COMPARE OUR APPEARANCE with that of the YOUNG MEN who eat the royal food, and TREAT YOUR SERVANTS in accordance with WHAT YOU SEE. WHAT CAN WE DO to IMPROVE this AREA of our life? 1.) Seek to GLORIFY GOD in our BODY! 2.) Seek to LIVE a BALANCED LIFESTYLE! 3.) Seek to LEARN FROM THOSE who have FACED OTHER GIANTS in their life. FIVE LESSONS David learned while FACING GOLIATH: 1.) PREPARE IN PRIVATE 2.) FIGHT THE RIGHT FOE 3.) DEVELOP YOUR OWN STRATEGY 4.) VALUE YOUR VICTORIES 5.) ANTICIPATE THE GIANT S RETURN 9
