"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." (John 7:38)
"Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit."
(Ephesians 5:18 NIV)
Exceptionally tempting is this thing called alcohol!
Oh yes! It's a drug-soo many people HAVE TO HAVE IT!-they'll risk their life to have it all!
Mix it with pills, and they'll have a ball! Weaving back and forth in highway lanes, and stumbling ‘til they fall!
What's the joy in that? I'd rather walk, than be so drunken sick that I have to crawl!
Is that what a good night on the town is called?!
Worse than that are others, in a ‘bed of depression,' sprawled!
Psychological and Medical help; and providing friendship is our call!
Let's give a therapist or Pastor call! Can't watch them pop those pills to make their ‘funk' stall!
You're a child of God-Pray and Fast for them. Plan an intervention! Talk to all involved!
"This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friend. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." (John 15:12-14)
Dear Pastor Glovioell,
It's not a crime to get high every once in awhile. I mean, life is to be enjoyed!
I am not one of those stuffy Christians that won't go party or do nothing that you used to do. Anyway, Jesus turned water into wine. Agree with me?
Got to Go Out and Party Sometimes.
Dear Got to Go Out and Party Sometimes,
"For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." (Romans 14:17)
I thought that I needed the booze too-I drank from the age of 18 to 22!
That's before I met the Jesus that I really knew!
I conquer problems in his name, and plead the Blood of Jesus when threats came.
There is soo much gladness that abides! There's so much joy inside.
I am filled with him to the brim!
I press through to meditate on him.
My fun is to let his Holy Spirit fill me everyday and every hour-with his presence!
As God's Spirit dwells inside, I have nothing; no problems to mask over with drugs to hide.
Yes! We have fun as Christians: Love to Laugh, to play games, enjoy videos and bar-b-ques too.
But the drinking, popping pills and smoking (cigarettes or reefer) is something we don't do!
