Celebrate Recovery @ Rafter J Cowboy Church Wednesday, August 15, 2018 7 pm – Moral Lesson

Meal Served at 6:15 pm to 6:45 pm
Large group starts 7 pm (age requirement 15 years and older)
Small groups starts at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years and older)
Principle 4. Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and someone I trust.
“Blessed 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

In this principle, you need to list (inventory) all the significant events – good and bad – in your life.  
You need to be as honest as you can be to allow God to show you your part and how that affected you and others.  

The acrostic for MORAL shows you how to begin.

Make time





Focus Question for Small Groups:

What are your fears about starting your inventory? 

What were the benefits of completing your personal inventory?

Principle 4 Prayer: 
Dear God, You know my past, all the good and the bad things that I’ve done.  
In this step, I ask that You give me the strength and the courage to list those things so that 
I can “come clean” and face them and the truth.  
Please help me reach out to others You have placed along my “road to recovery.”  
Thank you for providing them to help me keep balanced as I do my inventory. 
In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
