Thursday – Three Steps to Freedom
Submitted by westend_admin on Thu, 2011-07-07 16:22
I am still pondering the verse from Tuesday’s blog: “the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free” (Romans 8:2). The key question is this: how can we experience freedom in our lives? In many ways, I think the Twelve Step Program has helped give shape to this experience. To flesh out what this means for all of us spiritually, I have reworded the first three steps in a more general manner. As you read them, consider if they represent the freedom that faith offers. And if they do, is there a step you need to take on your journey to freedom? Step one: I admit I am powerless to become fully who God created me to be and my life has become unmanageable. Step two: I believe God can empower me to live into who I am created to be. Step three: therefore, I turn my will and my life over to the care of God.
