Here are two definitions of "drunk". Notice that neither refer to alcohol.
1. a temporary state of losing control of one's physical and mental faculties
2. being overcome or dominated by strong emotions or feelings
Read carefully this wonderful passage of scripture regarding drunkenness: Ephesians 5:18-19. "Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead let the Holy Spirit fill and control you. Then you will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, making music to the Lord in your hearts."
When we get drunk with alcohol we lose self-control which is contrary to God's desire for us. If you've ever been drunk, have you felt its side effects? Did you lose control? Did you do anything you regretted? Did you have a really bad headache later? Did you vomit? The morning after the night can be rather ruined, huh? For those people who struggle with alcoholism, lives get ruined. Just as it says in the scripture above. Ironically enough, self-control is part of the "fruit of the Spirit" which God has granted us (Galatians 5:22). He provides it through a special means. The Holy Spirit.
Instead of alcohol, we should let the Holy Spirit control us. That's a different kind of drunk. When we surrender to the Holy Spirit we lose control. We give up ourselves and strive to be led by the Spirit. We must be controlled by the Spirit (Romans 8:1-17). As we come to recognize the Holy Spirit in our lives, we can allow ourselves to be overcome by it and dominated by it. That's actually God's desire for us! Go back and look at the definitions of "drunk" written above.
Why give into drunkenness with mere alcohol which may give you a temporary high when you can be taken captive by the Holy Spirit which gives a lasting joy? Paul in Galatians 5 makes this contrast. Losing yourself to the Holy Spirit's control will bring a higher high and an everlasting joy that will never wear off. It is a cure for the depression and tension which drives many of us to drink. And it won't leave you with a ruined life. Quite the opposite.
Let's close with the last sentence from our passage. "Then you will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, making music to the Lord in your hearts." Getting "drunk" or "lost" within the Spirit's control of our lives brings the result of worship. The Holy Spirit leads us to honor and glorify God. Paul describes the singing of praise from your heart, the emotional depths of your soul. This is powerful singing. It's not your typical bar karaoke. No! This is singing you bring to God because you've given over control of your own worship to the Holy Spirit's powerful worship leading.
Give up the temporary hole-fillers like drinking. Allow the Holy Spirit to take control. Be drunk for worship.
worship Him 24/7...
