Fractured – Seven deadly sins
GLUTTONY – Luke 16:19-31

GLUTTONY – uncontrolled obsession with satisfying physical appetites

Big idea: GLUTTONY must be identified and destroyed 

Be willing to look at yourself... Your faith in Jesus matters, once your life is over here on earth, its then too late. 

* What does GLUTTONY look like?

We enjoy life and what it has to offer, but God didn’t mean for us to enjoy over a limitation to what our body can handle! Gluttony is a fixation to what is seen and that it has to be had. Food is good! God created food for our sustenance. But it wasn’t meant for over indulgence and “everyday ain’t your birthday.” Don’t not allow food, drink, etc to be as a fixations. God has bestowed upon us so much, bread, wine, food but it wasn’t meant to be worshipped or used EVERYDAY in excess! We have to be careful what we keep in our homes. I might have control right this moment, but I can’t predict later part of each and everyday. Our hearts are deceptive and wicked. Be watchful. We can’t handle our appetites. Focus on God and what is WISE for you and your body. Gluttony is an attitude and ignoring those around us. 

* Why is GLUTTONY so dangerous?

A person can be so obsessed with physical appetite they neglect their spiritual need. Gluttony destroys the temple (your body) of God. Your house of God is the body you carry around. If you don’t do sons at church, why would you carry this throughout your day? God dwells here in our body, our temple, would you aid in destroying His? Self control is apart of being able…. gluttony destroys your appetite for God. (Matthew 5:6). Gluttony destroys our usefulness through God. There are

Ramifications, it can skew and harm my body and destroy my relationship with God and I focus on temporary instead of fulfilling life long for the glory of God. God can bless us and we should be willing to open it up to others. God blesses us to bless others. 

* How can I destroy GLUTTONY?

Destroying gluttony isn’t easy, those appetites can be strong. We can lose focus and choose to see what we see by sight or use our spiritual eyes. Stay HUNGRY FOR GOD! God satisfies, stay hungry through Him! In the “heat” of the moment, it’s all good and wonderful and you feel great, but how did or will you feel later!? Listen to the small voice …. don’t allow gluttony to push you where you don’t want to be…. our appetites are so weak! Stay filled with the spirit… keep yourself full of righteousness and leave the gluttony to the side. Don’t over-do what your body DOESN’T NEED! Bring God the glory! Stay disciplined in the flesh. Step up and do the right thing! It’s not going to be easy, but pray over this everyday, moment by moment, embrace the struggle THROUGH Christ! 
Find the fruit of the spirit – self-control! You can do this by keeping with Christ through you and in you. We all struggle with seven deadly sins! Pray for each other! 

** Find a celebrate recovery to help you through your struggles! You’re not alone! 
“”There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted SUMPTUOUSLY every day. And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'””

– ‭‭Luke‬ ‭16:19-31‬‬
“You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth and wine to gladden the heart of man, oil to make his face shine and bread to strengthen man’s heart.”

– ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭104:14-15‬‬
“”Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.”

– ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:13‬‬
“”Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”

– ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:6‬‬
“But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.”

– ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭9:27‬‬
“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

– ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:24‬‬
