Romans 15:7 Warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified.
Church is not a building. Church is not a place. Church is a people! It is made up of people from all walks of life, weak, strong, rich, poor, addictive and compulsive. People with all sorts of problems in their lives. People who need help, people who need recovery, people who need Jesus. People whom the Bible tells us to “warmly welcome them into Church (Recovery) in the same way we were welcomed when we first arrived. Step Twelve says “Having gone through these steps and discovering the importance of individual relationship with God through Jesus, I will try to live according to His principles and to lead others to personal relationship with Him.”
- When you see someone new in recovery, how are you welcoming them?
