Beer, Alcohol and Parties
Since I started following Jesus, I stopped
drinking alcohol. And the reason is not because alcohol is in itself a sin,
but because IF YOU DRINK ALCOHOL YOU LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE WORLD. I don’t know where
you are from, but where I’m from everyone parties, everyone
gets drunk and if you drink at ALL you look exactly like them.
The other day I was cleaning out the fridge and I noticed in the back of the fridge a
couple beers. I threw them away. I was also very thirsty
and I thought to myself that one of these beers would be nice,
but as soon as I thought that, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said; “LOOK NOTHING LIKE
THE WORLD”, so I quickly just tossed them out. It wasn’t
a big temptation because I have not had an alcoholic beverage in over a year,
but many Christians think that it is okay to drink alcohol, get drunk once in a while,
or look a little bit like the world and still follow Jesus.
BUT if you TRULY are serious about following JESUS, you will want to LOOK NOTHING LIKE
THE WORLD. So are you doing EVERYTHING you possibly can
to follow JESUS with ALL your heart? And look nothing like the world?
Or do you look a little bit like the world? Or do you look a lot like the world? If you
are going to choose to follow Jesus, you need to look like JESUS! May the grace
of Jesus be with you.
