"There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another - showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way."

- 2 Timothy 3:15-17 KJV

-  2 Timothy 3:15-17 KJV


"Enjoy strong drink in moderation."

My Brothers and Sisters, I want to talk to you today about the dangers of strong drink. I’d like to start with a personal story. My late grandpa and late uncle, his oldest son were preachers and men of great faith. (As a young child, I would always set on the edge of the pulpit when my grandpa preached.) They always said, “If God put something on this earth for us to enjoy, then we should enjoy it, but in moderation.”

So, when I read Isaiah 5:11, I was struck by the verse that says, “Woe to those who rise early in the morning, that they may follow intoxicating drink.” As someone who had grown up around strong drink, I knew that too much of anything is bad, so I was curious as to what God meant in this verse. So, I did some research and here’s what I discovered. 

The first thing I learned is that Isaiah 5:11 is not a blanket condemnation of all drinking. In the context of the bible, the verse is referring specifically to strong drink. The kind of drink that can easily lead us into drunkenness and sin. It’s the kind of drink that can damage our relationships, our health and our faith. 

The second thing I learned is that this verse is a warning against the dangers of strong drink. In other words, it’s not only about abstaining from it, but also about enjoying it in moderation. The bible is full of examples of God’s people drinking wine or strong drink in moderation and using it to celebrate special occasions or to lift our spirits. 

Finally, I learned that while Isaiah 5:11 is a warning against strong drink, it’s also a reminder that we should always be mindful of our actions and accountable for our decisions. We should be careful to avoid anything that would lead us into sin or cause us to stumble in our faith. 

My Brothers and Sisters, if we want to stay on the path that God has set before us, we must remember the warning from Isaiah 5:11 and enjoy strong drink in moderation. As my grandfather used to say: “A sip of strong drink can be refreshing, but overindulgence will lead to ruin.”
