Step Two ~ Week One
“I Believe That God Exists”
Believing God exists increases our desire to live right
(Genesis 15:6) Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith.A
Belief God exists should be accompanied by action
(Deuteronomy 27:10) “You must obey the Lord your God by keeping all these commands and decrees that I am giving you today.”
Belief God exists affects the way we think about recovery
(Mark 1:15) “The time promised by God has come at last!” He announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”
Right beliefs are important for both salvation and recovery
(Romans 10:9) If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Believing God exists affects how we see and treat others
(James 2:2) Suppose someone comes into your meeting dressed in fancy clothes and expensive jewelry, and another comes in who is poor and dressed in dirty clothes.
This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.‘ Matthew 22:38-39
