Welcome to Celebrate Recovery online Bible Study
“We cannot control all that happens to us, but we can control how we respond to everything.” John Baker
Introduction to Study
The Bible clearly states “all have sinned.” It is my nature to sin, and it is yours too. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us needs repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended. You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression “Time heals all wounds.” Unfortunately, it isn’t true.
As a pastor I frequently talk with people who are still carrying hurts from thirty or forty years ago. The truth is, time often makes things worse. Wounds that are left untended fester and spread infection throughout your entire body. Time only extends the pain if the problem isn’t dealt with.
What we need is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery® is that program. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, the recovery program contained in this study is unique, and it is more effective in helping people change.
What’s the Purpose?
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery® is to encourage fellowship and to celebrate God’s healing power in our lives as we work our way along the road to recovery. We are changed as we share our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another.
In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace and forgiveness in solving our life’s problems. By working through the principles, we grow spiritually, and we are freed from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with others and our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ.
The features that makes Celebrate Recovery unique.
Celebrate Recovery is based on God’s Word, the Bible.
Celebrate Recovery is forward-looking.
Celebrate Recovery emphasizes personal responsibility.
Celebrate Recovery emphasizes spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ.
Celebrate Recovery utilizes the biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally.
Celebrate Recovery addresses all types of habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery is a leadership factory.
Learning How To Recover
The purpose for us on Wednesday’s is to, first how do I recover? Then learn how to help others. Using the principles of Celebrate Recovery by John Baker, Pastor of Recovery Ministry at Saddleback Church, Pastor by Rick Warren, we will begin that journey TOGETHER.
