“What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. They will not be judged. They have crossed over from death to life.” John 5:24
Recovery, through relationship with Jesus is a new way of life for most of us. It was for me.
On my many trips to church services during my time in rehab I heard a lot of messages from the Bible and I believed them.
I believed them because when “I made a decision to let God help me change my life” I took seriously” my commitment to working with Him to do so.”
Recovery requires commitment to follow Jesus no matter how bad or how good it gets.

How has recovery changed you?
It’s because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God. Now that you’ve cleaned up your lives by following the truth, love one another as if your lives depended on it. Your new life is not like your old life. Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God’s living Word. Just think: a life conceived by God himself! 1 Peter 1:21-23
God’s love and forgiveness frees us to take our eyes off ourselves and to meet others’ needs. By sacrificing His life, Christ showed that He truly loves us. We can love others by following His example
