Drink your wine with a merry heart. God gives wine that makes glad the heart of men. Drinking wine from your own vineyard as a sign of God’s blessing.Yes, come buy wine and milk. What God commands Christians regarding alcohol is to avoid drunkenness. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation but be filled with the Spirit. The Bible condemns drunkenness and its effects. Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes?Those who linger long over wine, Those who go to taste mixed wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly- At the last it bites like a serpent And stings like a viper.

Your eyes will see strange things And your mind will utter perverse things. And you will be like one who lies down in the middle of the sea, Or like one who lies down on the top of a mast.They struck me, but I did not become ill- They beat me, but I did not know it. When shall I awake? I will seek another drink. Christians are also commanded to not allow their bodies to be mastered by anything. Promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption- for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.

Drinking alcohol in excess is undeniably addictive. Scripture also forbids a Christian from doing anything that might offend other Christians or encourage them to sin against their conscience. But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, dining in an idol’s temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things sacrificed to idols?For through your knowledge he who is weak is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died.

And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble. In light of these principles, it would be extremely difficult for any Christian to say he is drinking alcohol in excess to the glory of God. Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Jesus changed water into wine. It even seems that Jesus drank wine on occasion. On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there- and both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to Him, They have no wine. And Jesus said to her, Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come.

His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it.Now there were six stone waterpots set there for the Jewish custom of purification, containing twenty or thirty gallons each. Jesus said to them, fill the waterpots with water. So they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter. So they took it to him.When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from but the servants who had drawn the water knew, the headwaiter called the bridegroom, and said to him, Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine- but you have kept the good wine until now.

This beginning of His signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.
