Take Time to Be Holy
Bryan Denlinger Bible Believers Fellowship
Sweet Hour of Prayer
In this sermon we look at two different types of "addiction". First we look at many common BAD addictions such as; Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking, Pornography, Gambling, and even some lesser addictions like TV and Movies, Video Games, Caffeine, Gluttony, and Debt. We look at some scriptures which discuss these addictions, and talk about ways to eliminate them.
Then in the last part of this sermon, we look at some GOOD addictions. 1 Corinthians 16:15 talks about being "addicted to the ministry". We speak about three different things which every Christian shouldn't want to forsake for even one day. These three spiritual addictions are; Prayer, Bible Study, and Soul-Winning Ministry.
The best way to eliminate a sinful addiction is NOT to try and quit, but rather to REPLACE it with a GOOD spiritual addiction!
14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (King James Bible)
