Are You In Recovery?

Someone may say, “I am a Christian; I am on my way to heaven; I belong to Christ.” But if he doesn’t do what Christ tells him to, he is a liar. But those who do what Christ tells them to will learn to love God more and more. That is the way to know whether or not you are a Christian. Anyone who says he is a Christian should live as Christ did. 1 John 2:4-6

In the same way anyone who says “I am in recovery” and doesn’t do what God tells them to do (through prayer, meditation and reading the Bible I have never failed to discern God’s will for my life) is not in recovery. The may be abstaining from their drug of choice. They may even be living a cleaner, more productive life but unless they are doing what God has determined to be His will for their lives they are not in recovery.
