CELEBRATE RECOVERY 12 STEPS

AND BIBLICAL COMPARISONS

 

1. We admitted we were powerless over our

addictions and compulsive behaviours,

that our lives had become unmanageable.

I know that nothing good lives in me, that is,

in my sinful nature.

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot

carry it out. Romans 7:18 NIV

2. We came to believe that a power greater than

ourselves could restore us to sanity.

For it is God who works in you to will and to act

according to his good purpose. Philippians 2:13 NIV

3. We made a decision to turn our lives and our

wills over to the care of God.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy,

to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and

pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship.

Romans 12:1 NIV

4. We made a searching and fearless moral

inventory of ourselves.

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Lamentations 3:40 NIV

5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16a NIV

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 NIV

7. We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 NIV

8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIV

9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24 NIV

10. We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 1 Corinthians 10:12

11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. Colossians 3:16a NIV

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 NIV
