Recovery is Contagious
Acts 16:31 “Put your entire trust in the Master Jesus. Then you’ll live as you were meant to live–and everyone in your house included!”
Over the life of my recovery I have watched members of my immediate family change because of the changes they have seen in me. Do they profess to be Christian? I don’t know. They are all believers. The same as I was before I came into recovery.
The one thing I am sure of God is working in each of them and He has changed them whether they acknowledge Him or not.
The other thing I know is because of my decision to change and its effect on my children. My kids are not into the things I was growing up.
Recovery changes our lives and it also changes the lives of those in our sphere of influence.
- Have you noticed changes in others because of your recovery?
Conquerors inherit all this. I’ll be God to them, they’ll be sons and daughters to me. Revelation 21:7
In a single victorious stroke of Life, all three–sin, guilt, death–are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God! 1 Corinthians 15:57
Jesus said “In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” John 16:33
I am not the same!
Prayer: God through my example change those I love and cherish.
