Gluttony: Society’s Most Acceptable Sin – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – Skip Heitzig

November 22, 2022

Topic: gluttony

Bible Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Overindulgence has become a hallmark of our modern American culture. Our bodies are constantly alive with conflicting desires and drives. The temptation to eat too much, drink too much, or indulge in any number of things is constant. And it is also trivialized. So what if a person eats a little too much? It’s his body! It’s her life! Or is it? How can we bring honor to God with our bodies? Is caring for them carnal, or is it a responsible activity of stewardship?

This teaching is from our series White Collar Sins with Skip Heitzig from Calvary Church.

Shepherd Threads…

  • Your body is a Holy place – the physical human place – seeing your body as a temple it raises your body to a higher plane
  • Your body has a Holy person – God is taking up residence in you. Jesus wanted to win you so the Holy Spirit can live in you
  • Satan tempts people with food.
  • The only thing that can fill a God-sized hole is God himself
  • Your body had a hefty price
  • Your Body has a heavenly purpose – your body should be a billboard to God
  • The more you give your life way the more you gain your life
  • When I live for His pleasure and purpose I find pleasure and purpose
  • 1st say yes – develop an appetite for the Word of God
  • 2nd say no – like Daniel. That is saying no because self control is the fruit of the spirit
  • 3rd say Go – get up and move – like Paul said. I beat my body into subjection (1 Corinthians 9:27) – keep your body as usuable until God calls you home. You can exercise to thank God.
