Late one night he visited Jesus and said, “Rabbi, we all know you’re teacher straight from God. No one could do all the God-pointing,
God-revealing acts you do if God weren’t in on it.” John 3:2
There are plenty of people who claim, to live by the principles of recovery who hardly understand there in-depth meaning. Nicodemus was an educated religious, leader who recognised Jesus as ‘The Wisdom of God.’ Even then, Nicodemus was alienated from the real understanding of what he was saying. Today it is the same for those who use this title lightly. If we know and accept Jesus is ‘The Great Teacher’ we should be prepared to continually be His pupils in His school, and be obedient to His Word. Spiritual learning in His school is not always easy to accept and thre is no graduation. Recovery is a life-long process.
The teacher is right. He does not falter, nor make mistakes. He disciples us and does not accommodate the notion ‘as long as you tried’ Recovery is not a game. Addiction is a life-threatening condition, that left un arrested will kill us.
1 Corinthians 2:14 The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion.
Success in the process of recovery is reliant on us making a conscious decision to let God teach us to change our lives, through committing them to Him, seeking His will for our lives and following where He leads us when we discover his will.
Teach me Lord the simple things that can change my life, help me to better understand you and hear your voice
