This Thursday Derrick is Teaching Lesson #5 – TURN


“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”  2 Corinthians 5:17

We have all experienced that life is ever-changing, and nothing is ever quite certain. This week, we will learn about what it means to turn away from our insanity – always searching for truth and stability around us – and instead place our trust in a certain God. This is what faith is. It does not come down to a sense, sight, or reason. And once we have chosen to turn away from our sin and toward Him, He will joyously give us a new life, no longer bound to our old sinful nature.

“Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit.”  Ezekiel 18: 30 – 31

Recovery Reminder

Principle 3: Consciously choose to commit my life and will to Christ’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
