Gluttony vs. Temperance (Moderation)
Sermon: “Never Enough To Fill Us”
Theme: Gluttony is the sin of using something tangible such a food or possessions to create feelings of being worthy, and valuable. Gluttony causes us to starve to death spiritually while being smothered and buried physically.
Purpose: The congregation will understand Gluttony and will begin to see the patterns in themselves so that they may be free.
Scriptures: Luke 16:19-31 The Rich Man and Lazarus.
Galatians 5:1, 13-15 Be free, do not use your freedom for self-indulgence.
What causes us to become gluttonous? What happens when we begin to try and fill the void in our hearts with meaningless things? How do we address the sin of gluttony in ourselves before it kills us? How do we move forward to drawing our value and purpose from our knowledge of Christ and our meaningful relationships? What is temperance and how do we really use it as a spiritual discipline to bring growth and healing in our lives?
