1 Corinthians 11:27 Do not eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in a way that isn’t worthy of him. If you do, you will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.
Prior to coming into the Bridge Program in 1989, I was in recovery for all the wrong reasons. To regain the trust of my family whom I had let down on numerous occasions. To get a woman back from a previous relationship that went pear-shaped as a result of my drinking. I learned all that I could about recovery to impress people. I even used to share with people from the Bible-based devotional I had to convince them God was in the right place in my recovery. But he wasn’t and I think I was more dangerous to others than helpful to them at that time.
Recovery is about studying the Word of God and relying on Him on how to apply it.
