Drinking After Death


Church Family,

Sunday morning our message is going to be about change. Have you ever had a Saul(Paul) moment where God seemed to knock you off of your high horse? Maybe for years you held to a certain belief, but now God seems to be challenging it and revealing the error in your previous thinking. What you believe may have been right, but how you lived it and the context through which you presented it was wrong.

Sometimes the change is more subtle. It may not be that we were doing or thinking wrong, but that we didn’t fully grasp what was going on.

In my bible reading this morning I came across this nugget. Have you ever wondered why Christ asked the Father, “to take this cup away from me?”

Revelation 14:10-11 he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Christ drank the wrath of God. Those who refuse to believe in Him as Lord and Savior will drink of it as well. For them, it will be an everlasting drink. Isn’t that sad. The friends who can’t wait to drink with their buddies when they reach Hell, will in fact get to drink, but not the kind they wanted.

We must be changed believer. We must be transformed from self-centered sinners to outward gospel telling believers. Our hearts must break for what breaks God’s. We must give all that we have in order to reach any and all for Jesus.

Love, Serve, Go
