2 Corinthians 5:17 When anyone is in Christ, it is a whole new world. The old things are gone; suddenly, everything is new!
From Skinhead to Salvationist. Archie Boyle found out the truth of this year’s Alcohol Awareness Week slogan – “Some drinking cost more than money” (the War Cry 1991)
WITHOUT CHANGE EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME: Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God–truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4:22-24
Recovery Rule #1
If you don’t drink alcohol you can’t get drunk and
if you don’t use drugs you can’t get stoned.
When we turn our lives over to God we are given a new identity. We become children of the light, Who are awake and have our eyes opened. One way we can prove we are living in the light is to pay attention to Romans 13:13. We can;t claim recovery and continue doing the immoral things we used to do.
Recovery requires changed behaviour and ‘living decent lives.=
