Addictions - Primarily a Worship problem.

WORSHIP – ADDICTIONS…

Who/What will you worship (Praise/give glory/give credit) today? Yourself? Material things? 12 step program? A god you invented/chose? Or The God of the Bible?

Addictions - are primarily a worship problem. Believers and non-believers are going to worship something! We worship what we love, day after day. if I love cookies, more than Christ - my devotion to cookies will increase. So, How do I begin to worship the best thing available?  First and foremost - i must be: a true believer/converted/regenerated/Christian/justified/born-again. Then,  I must feed on the Word, daily, fellowship with other believers, get fed on the Word through biblical preaching, prayer, humble obedience to the Word by the Spirit, following the Lord, being transformed by the renewing of my mind through the Word, preach the gospel of Christ to myself – daily.  As a true believer, this will feed my love for Christ, and minimize my love for feeding the flesh/sin=cookies/ alcohol/ drugs/ lust...etc.  A greater love for Christ will begin to push out the lesser loves/addictions. Gal. 5:19-21, Eph. 2:3-5, 1 Cor. 6:9,10, Mark 8:36, Ezekiel 36:26, 2 Cor. 5:17.  (Yes, someone in [current/active addiction-depending on amount of consumption], may need professional detox to help with withdrawal symptoms – although not always necessary).
