Celebrate Recovery @ Rafter J Cowboy Church Wednesday, January 16, 2019 7 pm – Forgiveness Lesson

Forgiveness Lesson #17

 
Large group starts at 7 pm (age requirements 15 years and older)
Small groups start at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years and older)
 
Do you know the three kinds of forgiveness?  Come join us tonight to receive the answers.
 
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 8:  We  made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31)
 
 
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)
 
 Focus  Question:  What hurts from a past relationship are you still hanging on to and how can you let go of them?

Celebrate Recovery @ Rafter J Cowboy Church – Wednesday, January 2, 2019 – Amends Lesson #16.

Meal Served @  6:15 pm 6:45 pm

Large group starts at 7 pm (age requirements 15 years and older)

Small groups start at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years or older)
 
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 8:  We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
 

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31)
 

 
Making your amends is the beginning of the end of your isolation from others and God.  The AMENDS acrostic will help you get started.

Admit the hurt and the harm
Make a list
Encourage one another
Not for them
Do it at the right time
Start living the promises of recovery
 
Focus  Question: How can you begin to live the promises of recovery? What promises of recovery have come true in your life?
 

Amends  Lesson Prayer:
Our Father, I pray for willingness, willingness to evaluate all my past and current relationships.  Please show me the people who I have hurt, and help me become willing to offer my amends to them.  Also, God, give me your strength to become willing to offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me.  I pray for Your perfect timing for taking the actions Principle 6 calls for.  I ask all these things in the name of Jesus, Amen.
