December 6, 2020 - LMA 12 Steps: Step #4
LMA Step #4 - COURAGE
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves, exploring our lives lived outside a conscious contact with God.
Step 4 speaks to the very healing aspect of looking within. Jesus Christ resides in each of us, yet, we can allow hurts and faulty thinking to seemingly fill us with these hurts, regrets, and such that seem to overtake our inner being and result in wrong behaviors. Our conscious contact with God is our awareness of His Presence. Drifting away from this awareness can result in a lifetime experience that misses the mark (a life of sin/wrongdoings). Look within and experience a conscious awareness of Jesus. Experience a life of real recovery, of spiritual growth.
John 14:20 (TPT): So when that day comes, you will know that I am living in the Father and that you are one with me, for I will be living in you.
John 14:20 (Mirror Bible): In that day, you will know that we are in seamless union with one another! I am in my Father, you are in me, and I am in you!
We are ONE in the Father. ONE in Jesus. ONE in Holy Spirit. ONE in one another.
