It’s Testimony  Night!

 

Large group starts at 7  pm and Small   groups start at 8  pm.

 

“Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me” (Psalm 27:10)

Do you wonder what the above verse has to do with the testimony tonight?

 

Are you curious? If so, come join us.

 

 

 

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)

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.
