Scripture text: Ephesians 5: 18-21                  Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland                   Date: 29 March 2015

This sermon continues our ongoing study of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. Today’s passage opens with the exhortation “do not get drunk on wine”: the sermon explores the nature of drunkenness and the reasons why people are attracted to it. It considers the scriptural condemnation of drunkenness and concludes with an explanation of the alternative which Paul urges — “be filled with the Spirit”.
