Celebrate Recovery: Fighting for Holiness

Posted by galenamissions in Celebrate Recovery
2Samuel 11:1  In the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle ... But David remained at Jerusalem.

It should come as no surprise to us that we fall back into sin when we find ourselves not doing what we already know we should be. This was David's fall that led him into sin with Bathsheba. It becomes our sin when we go back to alcohol or pornography or self-righteousness. Relaps is always a threat. And so we fight for holiness.

Celebrate Recovery: Peacemaker

Posted by galenamissions in Celebrate Recovery
"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy." Matthew 5:7
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9

Forgiveness is not forgetting. Forgiveness is not ignoring the hurt caused. Forgiveness is releasing the debt owed because of the offense. This is exactly what God has done for us in Christ Jesus. Step 6 of Celebrate Recovery says, "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." Scary huh? But I long for mercy, so because of Christ I can give mercy. I long for peace, and so through Christ I make peace. You can do this to through Christ.

Celebrate Recovery: Pure

Posted by galenamissions in Celebrate Recovery
Matthew 5:8  "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

"Blessed are the pure in heart" doesn't just happen. It's to completed work of a slaughtered Savior, a relentless Spirit, and a loving Father. So if we are to see God, how do we get a pure heart? Believe the Gospel and all things lead back to it's truth.
