Summary: There are striking similarities between someone intoxicated and a person drunk on Jesus!
DRUNK ON JESUS
By REV. P.L. GETTER
Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.
COMPARE A PERSON DRUNK ON ALCOHOL & DRUNK ON JESUS
DRUNKS WALK DIFFERENT
STAGGERING-LEANING ON OTHERS FOR HELP ETC..
DRUNK ON JESUS YOU WALK DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE-WALK BY FAITH-WALK IN LOVE
WE LEAN ON JESUS
II Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
DRUNKS TALK DIFFERENT
SLURRED SPEECH-VULGAR LANGUAGE- SAYING THINGS THEY DON’T MEAN
DRUNK ON JESUS- OUR SPEECH IS DIFFERENT THAN THE WORLDS-“AMEN-PRAISE GOD!- THANK-YOU JESUS!” CURSINGS TURNED TO BLESSINGS
USE PETER FOR EXAMPLE- CURSING AT THE FIRE- THAN FILLED WITH THE FIRE AND PREACHING ON FIRE!! BECAUSE HE GOT DRUNK ON JESUS!
James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
DRUNKS MAY STUMBLE AND FALL BUT GET BACK UP
THEY CAN BE SO DRUNK THAT THEY CAN’T WALK BUT THINK THEY CAN DRIVE-STUBBORNESS-DON’T STOP WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THEM THEY SHOULD
NEVER GIVE UP-KEEP SERVING GOD- YOU MIGHT FALL BUT GET BACK UP
LET JESUS CHRIST BE THE ONE WHO CONTROLS YOU
Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Proverbs 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
DRUNKS ARE ADDICTED
ALWAYS WANT ONE MORE DRINK- ONE MORE PARTY…
DRUNK ON JESUS- YOU ALWAYS WANT ONE MORE BLESSING- ONE MORE PRAYER MEETING- ONE MORE REVIVAL
YOU “LIVE FOR CHRIST” EVERY DAY
I Corinthians 16:15 I beseech you, brethren, ye (know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)
DRUNKS HAVE HANGOVERS
WAKE UP WITH PAIN- HEART ACHE SICK
WITH JESUS IT IS JOY UNSPEAKABLE
IT’S A HOLY GHOST HANGOVER
YOU WAKE UP AND YOU DON’T REGRET ANYTHING YOU’VE DONE!
I Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Phillipians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE FIRST DRINK…COME DOWN TO AN ALTAR
“O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD!”
Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
