How often in our day-to-day routine do we drink the drink that the world offers us?
Or even if you turn down drinking it today, are you allowing the world to pollute your drink for tomorrow?
Are you settling for a mixed drink? Letting the world influence your decisions and disguise itself in the midst of truth?
You see, the trouble with mixed drinks is that they are tasty, yes, but they also have a high bitterness content. Which, if you drink too deeply, you will alter your ability to think clearly. If you drink too often, you lose your ability to taste what is bitter and what is sweet. And eventually, you no longer need the sweet and you go straight for the bitter.
We need to remember that drinking of the cup the world offers us will end in spiritual drunkenness. We need to drink from the pure offering that the Holy Spirit gives us everyday. No exceptions, no alterations, no additives or alternatives.
So drink deep, my friends, but be cautious of what you are drinking.
1 Cor. 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.
