Pastor Michael Todd teased this week’s sermon last Sunday, but nothing could prepare the congregation for this eye opening sermon. The topic of discussion was gluttony and no one was safe from this convicting message.

There are many points that stood out but be sure to watch or listen to the sermon for yourself, notes are below.

Notes

  1. Gluttony (def): The bite over is gluttony
  2. The sin of gluttony is idolatry – it is a choice of comfort and control through food
  3. Food is comfort for me – Food is peace for me – Food is love for me – Food is enjoyment for me – Food is safety for me – Food is a friend for me – Food is fuel for me – Food is good, it just can’t be God
  4. Spirit – most valuable, eternal
  5. Soul – most vulnerable, educated
  6. Body, man’s vehicle , expires
  7. Gluttony is all about the heart
  8. Gluttony isn’t a weight issue, it’s a worship issue
  9. You are holy place – temple
  10. You have a holy person – Holy Spirit
  11. You were bought for a huge price – salvation
  12. You have a heavenly purpose – God’s glory
  13. How to beat gluttony: 1. Yes to truth 2. No to temptation 3. Go do something
  14. How do you kill the beast of feast? Fast

Scriptures:

Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags. (Proverbs 23:20-21)

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. (Ecclesiastes 2:24)

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. (Luke 12:22-23)

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own (1 Corinthians 6:19)

For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)
