The Drunk Elephant

Sorry for the late post...I've been moving.

If you missed this week you can listen to the podcast here.

Here's some questions, thoughts and scriptures from the night to think about this week:

Read Ephesians 5:8-9
We have a light calling
- Some run from the world to the safe Christian sub culture.
- Some immerse themselves so much in the world that they lose their light.
- We live in the land of gray.

How do we deal with the tension?

Read Ephesians 5:15
Paul calls us to a life of wisdom.
We need to ask what pleases the Lord.

Read Ephesians 5:18
What did you think of Nate's illustration of staying filled with the spirit?

It's more than a drinking issue...it's a calling issue.

What are the wounds and areas of tension you face when it comes to drinking?

How do we live as the people of God set apart in the land of gray?

I am so grateful that I went this night. Your message touched me and weighed heavy on my heart. It was more than a struggle with alcohol -- I walked away feeling like I have a purposeful life, to serve and live as LIGHT. Thank you for spreading truth in both regards. It was a privilidge to meet you as well. Thank you for asking Julie and Amy to pray with me. Blessings.
