Celebrate Recovery @ Rafter J Cowboy Church – Wednesday, October 17th

Ready Lesson #14
Large group  starts at 7  pm and Small   groups start at 8 pm
What does it mean to be entirely READY to have God remove our character defects?
Principle  5: Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
“Blessed are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires.”
Matthew 5:6
Step 6:  We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
James 4:10
Release control
Easy does it
Accept the change
Do replace your character defects
Yield to the growth
Leader’s Focus  Question:
What area of your life have you been able to turn over and surrender to Jesus Christ?  What area are you still holding onto?
Ready Lesson Prayer:
Dear God, thank You for taking me this far in my recovery.  Now I pray for Your help in making me be entirely ready to change all my shortcomings.  Give me the strength to deal with all of my character defects that I have turned over to You.  Allow me to accept all the changes that You want to make in me.  Help me be the person that You want me to be.  In Your Son’s name I pray, Amen.

It’s Testimony  Night!
Large group starts at 7  pm and Small   groups start at 8 pm.
 
Come hear about The Greatest Love, The Love of Christ and how He healed a woman who struggled with feeling unworthy and not wanted.

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from Him. Truly He is my rock and my salvation;     He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. (Psalm 62: 1-2)

 
Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience as the result  of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these  principles in all our affairs.
 
Brothers, if someone is caught  in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore them gently. But watch yourself,  or you also may be tempted. (Galatians 6:1)

 Admit Lesson #13

Large group  starts at 7  pm and Small  groups start at 8 pm
Do you want to gain healing that the Bible promises?
Come join us  tonight as we continue with Principle 4
and 
learn why you need to ADMIT your wrongs to another person.
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 5: We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to  another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

“Therefore  confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be  healed.” (James 5:16)
Leader’s Focus  Question: 
What is your biggest fear of sharing your inventory with another person? What positive changes have happened in your life due to sharing your inventory?
