“Now that we know we have Jesus… let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a Priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing… So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.” Hebrews 4:14-16 (MSG)
All of us have the ability to do great and good things. God made us unique among the inhabitants of this planet. He gave us the ability to live our lives, to better ourselves and humanity. He gave us the ability to love and be loved, to be in relationship with each other, to serve beyond ourselves, to help mankind and our planet. He has given us so much freedom that we sometimes get lost in it.
In recovery we come before our God broken and lost, hoping that he can make all things right if we surrender to his will. I don’t know about you but I need a savior each and every day. I need to be saved from me. Whether you have been in recovery one day or 30 years, we all need a savior.
We need to come to terms with our limitations. There is one God and we are not him. We all know that, yet we continue to come face-to-face with this truth as we slip into self-reliance to try and save ourselves. If we didn’t need a savior God wouldn’t have given us one. Jesus is not only our savior for today, but for tomorrow and forever.
Question: Is there any area in your life that you continue to play God? Why?
Love God, love people, Jesus first!
