"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

We have a false perception when it comes to the sin of gluttony. We tend to think of the overweight person stuffing their face and caricatures of unhealthy, slobbering, consumers usually fill our idea of gluttony. This could not be further from the truth. The Deadly Sin of Gluttony shows up in all kinds of ways when we control or are controlled by food that really is symbolic of a deeper spiritual issue. Christ has given us taste buds and flavors, he’s given us fasting and feasting, he’s given us bodies that need to be ready for work and rest, so what does it mean in our day in age to be a glutton? We live in a body image culture and how we think about food has got to come under the Lordship of Christ. Join us Online this Sunday as we look at what it means to be controlled by Christ and not our bellies.
