“Let’s take a good look at the way we’re living and reorder our lives under God” Lamentations 3:40 – The Message
“Is anyone crying for help? God is listening, ready to rescue you.” Psalm 34:17 – The Message
Step 2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity “Jesus...spoke up, ‘Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? I'm here inviting outsiders, not insiders—an invitation to a changed life, changed inside and out’” Luke 5:31-32 – The Message
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do...for I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing... what a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:17-20 – NIV
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable “But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can't keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realise that I don't have what it takes. I can will it, but I can't do it. I decide to do good, but I don't really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don't result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.” Romans 7:17-20 – The Message
