January 19, 2021 - Tuesday - LMA Devotional

Hey Everybody,

LMA Christ-Centered Recovery Group (We Are All Recovering From Something)

LMA Opening Statement

LMA (Life MoreAbundant) Opening Statement LMA is based on the theme 'We Are All RecoveringFrom Something"; as we know many of ourparticipants struggle with Substance Abuse and/or Dependence. Yet, even the 12-Step Model (according to the AA Text; better known as the 'Big Book'); states that 'Alcohol is but a symptom";•.•••• (ie ..•Drugs are symptom; Sin/Wrongdoing are symptoms.••.•). Our premise is that we suffer from a 'much deeper' malady than the 'substance or behavior'; Our Spiritual Condition is the "key to our Recovery, Redemption and Overall Healing". We are not here to force our 'views' or 'beliefs' upon one another; but to seek a closer Relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another. Our goal is to 'grow in our Spiritual Life"; and to experience a'More Abundant Life' as the result of thisRelationship. Let us read from Luke: Luke 4:18-19 (TPT) 1-8 19 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he hasanointed me to be hope for the poor, freedom for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners, 'You are set free!' I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the time of God's great acceptance has begun." This opening statement is meant to introduce you to our basic idea that ‘We Are All Recovering From Something’; that substances and behaviors are symptoms of our unhealthy ‘Spiritual Condition’……may we ‘all’ come to believe that God (Father-Son-Spirit) will come to our awareness as the only ‘True Foundation’ for Recovery from any all things…… John 8:32 (TPT) For if you embrace the truth, it will release more freedom into your lives.” Embrace ‘Truth’……you will ‘BE’ released into ‘True Freedom’ in Jesus…… Enough said…..

In jesus,
