Step Nine:- Having identified the people, I have harmed, I will now go and make restitution to them. Unless to do is going to cause them or other pain or suffering.
It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off. If the old message delivered by the angels was valid and nobody got away with anything, do you think we can risk neglecting this latest message, this magnificent salvation? First of all, it was delivered in person by the Master, then accurately passed on to us by those who heard it from him. Hebrews 2:1-3
Jesus Christ is the only Power capable of the life transformation we have come to recovery for. He stands ready and able to help those who come to him with empty hands, acknowledging their needs and problems “It is crucial we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so we don’t drif off.”
Step Nine is a step we all try to avoid. Who wants to go to someone and say “I’m sorry for the bad things I did to you. Let me make it right!.”I am ready to do whatever I need to do to repair our relationship.”
Psalm 37:21 says “Wicked borrows and never returns; Righteous gives and gives.” If we are serious about recovery and ready to go to any lengths to get it Step Nine is a step we need to grasp with both hands and run with it.
TRUSTING GOD SOMETIMES MEANS DOING WHAT YOU DON’T WANT TO
