Lesson #5: TURN
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
When we stop to think about it, we trust our lives to utter strangers each and every day. We put faith in people to obey traffic laws, to cook our food properly at our favorite restaurant, and even to give us the correct change at the grocery store. Why is it that we have such a hard time commiting and trusting our life to Christ, the creator of all things, including us?
As we approach Principle 3 this week, we have the opportunity to make the one-time decision to turn our life over to Christ, entrusting our care to Him. This is putting our faith into action! As we discuss making this turn this week, we remember that faith is not a sense or something done by sight or according to reason, but it is simply taking God at His word. By taking this step of faith, we are trusting God to give us understanding as He guides us moment by moment and step by step through both our recovery process and the process of getting to know Him more.
“Now God says He will accept and acquit us–declare us ‘not guilty’–if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins.” Romans 3:22
Principle 3: Consiously choose to commit all my life and will to Chirst’s care and control.
“Happy are the meek.” Matthew 5:5
Step 3: We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.” Romans 12:1
