Lesson #8 “MORAL”

This week as we move on to Principle 4, we will begin the process of “coming clean.” We chip away and clean out all the decay of the past that has built up over time and has kept us from seeing the real truth about situations and circumstances. When we don’t feel we are living in a manner that is pleasing to God or that is appropriate for us, we can get overcome with guilt, and we tend to allow it to have more power and control in our lives than we ought to.

As we work through Prinicple 4, we will learn that God uses something similar to guilt to correct us through His Spirit when we are wrong, and it is then called conviction. We need not beat ourselves up over past sins, but instead we are to allow God’s conviction to lead us to confess those things to Him and trust Him to forgive us and help us move past them. Join us this week as we learn to tell the difference between our self-imposed guilt and God’s loving and helpful condemnation. In the meantime, fully rely on Jesus to give you the strength this principle requires.

“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ.”  Romans 8:1

“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for I, the Lord your God, am with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9

Principle 4: Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.

“Happy are the pure in heart.” Matthew 5:8

Step 4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.” Lamentations 3:40

CR Step Studies

Men’s & Women’s Step Studies – 

Men’s Step Study starting Sunday, May 22nd, at 9:15 AM on the Davis Islands Campus.  Talk to Tommy or Jon for more information.

We are close to being able to announce a Women’s Step Study; please keep praying for all the arrangements to come together.

** Or for more information about open & upcoming Step Studies, click the “Contact Us” link above. **

Step Studies are a vital element of the Celebrate Recovery Program.  The Step Study is a place where an individual can work through the 12 Steps and the 8 Principles along with their Biblical comparisons. Participants will learn to build their relationship with God and others as they apply these principles to their lives. 

Step Studies are on a “Show Up” basis. that means if you are interested you can just show up at the designated time. These classes will remain opened for a few weeks after they begin. the decision to close a step study class, (meaning we have enough participants or are so far along in the content that it would be difficult to catch up) is joint decision made by the Step Study Leader and the Ministry leader.
