MEMORY VERSE: For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. Luke 1:15

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 PETER 2:9-11, 1 CORINTHIANS 3:16-17

1 Peter 2:9-11

9 But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

10 Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

11 Dearly beloved, I beseech [you] as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.

INTRODUCTION:

Jesus said “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20.

Christians as used in this context refers to those who have invited and accepted Jesus Christ into their lives as their Lord and Saviour and on daily basis are striving to be like Jesus. They are prepared to pay the price of discipleship. Such people are referred to as born again Christians. 2 Corinthians 5:17

1. ALCOHOL AND STRONG DRINKS ARE NOT FOR TRUE CHRISTIANS

a. True born again Christians teetotalers. A teetotaler is one that abstains from alcohol. If on medical advice, some people do away with alcohol for life on health ground; how much more should Christians do for the Holy Spirit that dwells in us as His temple.

b. True Christians are separated unto God for His use – Sanctification.

c. Genuinely born again Christians should not defile the temple of the Lord which is their body so as to avoid the wrath of God. 1 Corinthians 3:17

d. Bishops or Christian leaders should stay away from alcohol. 1 Timothy 3:3

2. EVIL EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL IN THE BIBLE

i. Noah, a man favoured by God was a victim of alcohol and he cursed. Genesis 9:20-25.

ii. Lot’s two daughters got him drunk on two consecutive nights in order to make him impregnate them and they achieved their dream. Genesis 30-38

iii. Nabal, Abigail’s husband drank himself to stupor regularly. 1 Samuel 25:36-37.

CONCLUSION: Christians have been called unto holiness and are to be separated unto God as the temple of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.

If God could instruct that John the Baptist must not be allowed to drink wine or strong drink but shall be filled with Holy Ghost because he would be a great vessel for Him; Luke 1:15.

Similarly, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people 1 Peter 2:9. As a chosen generation, we are to be filled with the Holy Ghost and not with wine or strong drinks. Ephesians 5:18.

PRAYER POINTS:

1. Father, destroy all the plans of the devil involving alcohol.

2. Daddy, rescue all your children that are under the yoke of strong drinks.

3. Father, according to Your Word, let none of RCCG workers be given to wine or strong drinks in Jesus Name

4. Holy Spirit, fill to overflowing all Your vessels and use them greatly.

5. I decree and declare as it is written that sin shall have no dominion over me in Jesus Name. Roman 6:14.
