Celebrate Recovery® addresses all types of habits, hurts and hang-ups.
CR Lesson ~ Give
When you place God first in your life, you realize that everything you have is a gift from Him. You find that your recovery is not dependent or based on material things; rather it is built upon you faith and your desire to follow Jesus Christ’s direction. We are never more like God than when we give…not just money or things but our very selves. That’s what Jesus did for us. He gave us the greatest gift of all…Himself. Giving and serving is a thermometer of your love. You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving. This week’s lesson on GIVE is by CR Leader Dale. . Meeting Friday at 7 p.m. in B-200.
The purpose of our Celebrate Recovery® program is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 8 Recovery Principles and the 12-Steps. This experience allows us to “be changed” and to actually live this new life that all too often is spoken of, but not realized. We open the door by sharing our hopes, dreams and struggles with each other and we begin to accept God’s abundant grace and provision. By working and applying these biblical principles, we grow spiritually. We gain a powerful new peace that frees us from emotional agony, isolation and self-destructive behavior so we can pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus and with each other than we ever thought possible. Many have experienced a miraculous healing from God while being involved in this group. Come, make real friends and spend time with the only true higher power, the only one who can truly help…Jesus Christ.
8 Recovery Principles Based on the Beatitudes
Celebrate Recovery® small groups can:
- Provide a safe place to share your experiences, strengths and hopes with others who are going through the “Principles” in a Christ-centered setting.
- Provide a leader who has gone through a similar hurt, hang-up or habit that will facilitate the group as it focuses on a particular recovery topic each week.
- Provide you with the opportunity to find an accountability partner and a sponsor.
Celebrate Recovery® Small Groups will not attempt to offer any professional clinical advice. Our leaders are not counselors. If needed, a list of approved counseling referrals is available.
