Often times we are overcome by the overwhelmliness of our surroundings, such that we become unconciouss of the very things that we are mandated to do as Christians. I consider this to be what drunkeness is all about. The lack of responsibility founded on an inability to take one's responsibilities into effect because of an apparently predominant outside factor.
If you look at the verse below, in Luke 8 Jesus says, 45 Who touched me?
Peter and the fellow Disciple's response is tantamount to drunkeness. They expected Jesus to be responsinve to the more apparent throng and press of the crowd.
However, God, through the words of Paul, persuades us to "Be diligent in these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy progress may be manifest unto all."(1 Timothy 4:15)
Unless a man be ready to do these things, which are to keep one's self beyond conciousness, and exercise extreme diligence to the things of the Lord and of the Spirit, to an ever responsive being, he becomes unfit for heaven, a fleshly drunkard.
I pray that you will be granted this, in Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
