CR_18-Grace

Grace Lesson #18
 
Large group starts at 7 pm (age requirements 15 years and older) 
Small groups start at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years and older) 
 
 
We must make our amends, make restitution, offer our forgiveness, but most of all, we must receive and model Jesus Christ’s freely given gift of GRACE.
 
Principle 6:    Evaluate all my relationships.  Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.
 
 
“Blessed are the merciful.” (Matthew 5:7)
“Blessed are the peacemakers.” (Matthew 5:9)
 
 
Step 9: We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
 
 
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar  and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift  there in front of the altar.  First go and be reconciled to your brother, then  come and offer your gift.” (Matthew 5:23-24)
 
 
 
God’s gift
Received by our faith
Accepted by God’s love
Christ paid the price
Everlasting gift
 
Focus  Question:  In what ways have you experienced God’s GRACE in your recovery?
 
 
 
Lesson  Prayer:
Our  Father, thank You for Your love, for Your freely given grace.  Help me model  Your ways when I make my amends to those I have hurt and offer my forgiveness to  those who have injured me.  Help me to set aside my selfishness and speak the  truth in love.  I pray that I would focus only on my part, my responsibility in  the issue.  I know that I can forgive others because You first forgave me.   
Thank you for loving me.  
In the name of Jesus we pray,  Amen.
