SERIES: White Collar Sins
MESSAGE: Gluttony: Society’s Most Acceptable Sin
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

MESSAGE SUMMARY
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?

Text: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Path

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. 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? In this teaching, Pastor Skip unpacked four affirming truths about our bodies:

  1. Your Body Is a Holy Place (v. 19a)
  2. Your Body Has a Holy Person (v. 19b)
  3. Your Body Had a Hefty Price (vv. 19c-20a)
  4. Your Body Has a Heavenly Purpose (v. 20b)
Points

Your Body Is a Holy Place
Your Body Has a Holy Person
Your Body Had a Hefty Price
Your Body Has a Heavenly Purpose
Practice

Connect Up: Pastor Skip mentioned that gluttony was once on the historic list of the seven deadly sins. Why do you think the Bible, and therefore God, views gluttony as a serious problem? What does placing anything higher than the Lord do to your relationship with Him?

Connect In: Though some people may struggle with gluttony within the church, why is it important not to base our thoughts on outward appearances? How can we change the mindset of fellowship from "When we meet, we eat" to "When we meet, let's eat His Word and meet one another's needs?" What practical things can we do to encourage one another away from gluttony and toward God?

Connect Out: In a day and age where excess (in food, money, etc.) is seen as a virtue, why is it important to live simply before the Lord and others? How can simple living be a witness to a watching world?
