DESCRIBE BOOZIENESS What the Bible Says About Alcohol and Alcoholism

Alcoholics can't control their drinking. If you are an alcoholic, you have a compulsive desire to drink. When you drink, your negative personality traits, such as anger, may be intensified and your problems may seem magnified. In order to cover up your alcoholism, you may tend to overdo in other areas of your life.

Chances are, you need a drink at certain times of the day in order to get going, to face your problems, or to relax. And you may even drink on the job. Of course this means that your work and efficiency is slacking off. And your home life is probably suffering as well. You are enslaved by the sin of alcoholism.

Yet there is hope. God is able to deliver you completely by cleansing, sanctifying, and justifying you (I Corinthians 6:9-11). Though alcohol abuse is a failing of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21), the Holy Spirit can, and will, produce the self-control you needto overcome it (Galatians 5:22-23).

What Scripture Says

'He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.' (Proverbs 28:13).

'Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective' (James 5:16).

'If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness' (I John 1:8,9).

'Your wickedness will punish you. Your backsliding will rebuke you. Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you forsake the Lord your God and have no awe of me' (Jeremiah 2:19).

'For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him' (John 3:17).

'Jesus answered her, 'If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water'' (John 4:10).

'But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth' (Acts 1:8). (Here is the key to beating alcoholism -- through the power to overcome.)

'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law' (Galatians 5:22, 23). (God will produce will power for the powerless.)

'Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit' (Ephesians 5:18).

'Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler: whoever is led astray by them is not wise' (Proverbs 20:1).

Is There Hope?

If you have a drinking problem, you have probably felt condemned by yourself and others. Rather than condemning, however, God emphasizes how to overcome by receiving salvation, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit. With these you will have the ability to become free and stay free of alcohol.

The saying 'once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic' is based on the fact that a recovered alcoholic can never go back to drinking in any amount without being controlled by it again. Therefore, you need to ask God to deliver you from the desire to drink at all.

Practical Help

You probably have tried to stop drinking before and it has not worked for you. You may have tried religion or you may even be a Christian. What you need is practical spiritual help. Seek out a Spirit-baptized counselor. Ask him to pray for deliverance for you -- especially from compulsiveness, psychological and physical dependence, and even from the desire to drink.

You may have been told, 'You must stop drinking and never drink again.' But the pressure of having to face life without drinking may be overwhelming. Focus on the present. Decide that you will not have a drink right now. 'Live one day at a time. Each day has enough trouble of its own' (Matthew 6:34).

You need to modify and change your lifestyle. The Bible speaks of being transformed by the renewing of your mind' (Romans12:2). You can renew your mind through your reading and thinking habits. The Bible and devotion testimonial books will be most helpful. Dwell on God and His Word rather than on your problem.

Learn and follow the principle of praise (honor and respect) to God each time you are tempted to drink. 'Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise -- the fruit of lips that confess his name' (Hebrews 13:15). It is important to change your perspective from yourself to God, and from the drink to God. Praise God the Problem-solver rather than the problem. Remember that you can be just as chained to sin by trying not to do it as you are by doing it. As long as your attention is on the sin, you are honoring it. But if your attention is on God, you are honoring Him. 'Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2).

Contact a Spirit-filled church, or prayer group, and Alcoholics Anonymous. Try a local church the pastor can help you do this.

You may have a spouse, relative, or friend who is not an alcoholic and wants to help you. He or she may need salvation, the baptism of the Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit for their own sake. They can then better intercede for your deliverance from alcohol.

Your close relatives may need to know how to help spiritually in your effort to recover. They should know that openly condemning an alcoholic is not effective. It may just feed your sense of 'joyous agony' because you are 'getting what you deserve.' Jesus came to save, not to condemn (John 3:17).

That's not to say that they should tolerate your alcoholic behavior. Instead, they should offer to help you. Your spouse, friends, or relatives can find out how to help you by contacting a Spirit-filled fellowship, AA, or ALANON, an organization for friends and relatives of alcoholics.

As You Pray

If you are not yet a born-again Christian, ask God to forgive you, save you and fill you with the Holy Spirit. An unforgiven, unclean drunkard cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (I Corinthians 6:10; I John 1:8,9; Romans 10:13; Luke 13:5; Acts 1:8).

Pray for deliverance. Offer thanks and praise for God's deliverance, mercy, ever-present help and power to overcome.

Pray for deliverance from fear -- the fear that 'I won't be able to make it' (II Timothy 1:7).

If you want to experience God's abundant LIFE, pray this simple prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus' name. I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God so now I want to quit disobeying You and start living for You. Please forgive me, change my life and show me how to know You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Jesus Brilliantness Of God Jesus, Brilliant Teacher [John 8]
1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. 3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court,4they said to Him, 'Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act.5'Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?'6They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.7But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, 'He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.'8Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.9When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.10Straightening up, Jesus said to her, 'Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?'11She said, 'No one, Lord.' And Jesus said, 'I do not condemn you, either Go From now on sin no more.']

I always imagined that this event took place apart from other people, however, according to John, Jesus was in a public venue. He was seated in the temple teaching all the people who were coming to Him when 'the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery and having set her in the center of the court.' Jesus, then, proceeded to very quietly and brilliantly use this situation as an object lesson for His teaching for the crowd that was gathered to learn from Him. He wasn't flustered or angry. With just a few words to the scribes and Pharisees and then to the woman, the situation was defused and the crowd had a powerful object lesson.

So what lessons were learned by those who watched this situation unfold before them? First, they learned that Jesus was peaceful and calm in contrast to the scribes and Pharisees who not only disrupted His teaching, but were inciting Jesus and the crowd to participate in a stoning there in the temple. Second, they learned that the scribes and Pharisees were not as innocent as they led people to believe. And, finally, they saw the compassion and forgiveness that Jesus offered to the scribes and Pharisees and to the adulterous woman. Jesus was not like their other leaders and this whole situation backfired on those religious leaders and gave a setting for Jesus to shine in their darkness. 'Then He spoke to them again: I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.' (v. 12, Holman CSB).

A few verses later Jesus gives a reason why His judgment is true. 'Because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent me judge together.' (v. 16, Holman CSB).

We praise you that you are a brilliant teacher full of calm compassion and forgiveness. Cause us to daily sit at your feet and receive the light of life that You are for us. We praise You that You are the righteous judge who understands and has great mercy. Let us judge together with You as we face hard situations and hurting people today.

Living Sacrifice Ministries Living Sacrifice Ministries was formed as a calling by God to remind people that although Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins, we are further commanded in Scripture, particularly in verses like Romans 12:1, to 'present (our) bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.'
The mission of LSM is to remind Christians the world over of this duty, as it glorifies God, and further assists in bringing others to His Kingdom. In meeting Christian leaders in developing countries around the world, I found many of them already living this way, giving sacrificially in ways many Westerners could never imagine.
