Foreword by Rick Warren, ou ve undoubtedly heard the expression Time heals all wounds. Unfortunately it isn t true As a pastor I frequently talk with people who. are still carrying hurts from thirty or forty years ago The truth is time. often makes things worse Wounds that are left untended fester and spread. infection throughout your entire body Time only extends the pain if the. problem isn t dealt with, Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that can help. you overcome your hurts habits and hang ups Based on the actual words. of Jesus rather than psychological theory this recovery program is more. effective in helping people change than anything else I ve seen or heard of. Over the years I ve witnessed how the Holy Spirit has used this program. to transform literally thousands of lives at Saddleback Church and help. people grow toward full Christlike maturity, Perhaps you are familiar with the classic 12 Step program of AA and. other groups While undoubtedly many lives have been helped through. the 12 Steps I ve always been uncomfortable with that program s vague. ness about the nature of God the saving power of Jesus Christ and the. ministry of the Holy Spirit So I began an intense study of the Scriptures. to discover what God had to say about recovery To my amazement. I found the principles of recovery in their logical order given by. Christ in His most famous message the Sermon on the Mount. My study resulted in a ten week series of messages called The Road. to Recovery During that series my associate pastor John Baker devel. oped the four participant s guides which became the heart of our Cel. ebrate Recovery program, As you work through these participant s guides I trust that you will. come to realize many benefits from this program Most of all however my. prayer for you is that through Celebrate Recovery you will find deep peace. and lasting freedom in Jesus Christ as you walk your own road to recovery. Dr Rick Warren,Senior Pastor Saddleback Church, 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 7 6 13 12 12 39 PM. Introduction, Congratulations You are well on your way on your road to recovery.

The Road to Recovery,Eight Principles Based on the Beatitudes. By Pastor Rick Warren, 1 Realize I m not God I admit that I am powerless to control my ten. dency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor. Matthew 5 3, 2 Earnestly believe that God exists that I matter to Him and that He. has the power to help me recover, Happy are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5 4, 3 Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ s care and. Happy are the meek Matthew 5 5, 4 Openly examine and confess my faults to myself to God and to. someone I trust,Happy are the pure in heart Matthew 5 8. 5 Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and. humbly ask Him to remove my character defects, Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires. Matthew 5 6, 6 Evaluate all my relationships Offer forgiveness to those who have. hurt me and make amends for harm I ve done to others except when. to do so would harm them or others,Happy are the merciful Matthew 5 7. Happy are the peacemakers Matthew 5 9, 7 Reserve a daily time with God for self examination Bible reading. and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain. the power to follow His will, 8 Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others. both by my example and by my words,Happy are those who are persecuted because they. do what God requires Matthew 5 10, 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 9 6 13 12 12 39 PM. Twelve Steps and,Their Biblical Comparisons, 1 We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive. behaviors that our lives had become unmanageable, For I know that good itself does not dwell in me that is. in my sinful nature For I have the desire to do what is good. but I cannot carry it out Romans 7 18, 2 We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore. us to sanity, For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order. to fulfill his good purpose Philippians 2 13, 3 We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God. Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters in view of God s mercy. to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to God. this is your true and proper worship Romans 12 1, 4 We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Let us examine our ways and test them and let us return. to the Lord Lamentations 3 40, 5 We admitted to God to ourselves and to another human being the. exact nature of our wrongs, Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other. so that you may be healed James 5 16, 6 We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up. James 4 10, 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 10 6 13 12 12 39 PM. 7 We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings. If we confess our sins he is faithful and just and will forgive us. our sins and purify us from all unrigh teous ness 1 John 1 9. 8 We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to. make amends to them all, Do to others as you would have them do to you Luke 6 31. 9 We made direct amends to such p eople whenever possible except. when to do so would injure them or others, Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there. remember that your brother or sister has something against you. leave your gift there in front of the altar First go and be reconciled. to them then come and offer your gift Matthew 5 23 24. 10 We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong. promptly admitted it,So if you think you are standing firm be careful. that you don t fall 1 Co rin thi ans 10 12, 11 We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious. contact with God praying only for knowledge of His will for us and. power to carry that out, Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly Colossians 3 16. 12 Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps we try to. carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our. Brothers and sisters if someone is caught in a sin you who live by. the Spirit should restore that person gently But watch yourselves or. you also may be tempted Galatians 6 1, Throughout this material you will notice several references to the Christ centered 12 Steps. Our prayer is that Celebrate Recovery will create a bridge to the millions of people who are. familiar with the secular 12 Steps I acknowledge the use of some material from the 12 Sug. gested Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and in so doing introduce them to the one and only. true Higher Power Jesus Christ Once they begin that relationship asking Christ into their. hearts as Lord and Savior true healing and recovery can begin. 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 11 6 13 12 12 39 PM. Serenity Prayer, If you have attended secular recovery programs you have seen the. first four lines of the Prayer for Serenity The following is the complete. prayer I encourage you to pray it daily as you work through the principles. Prayer for Serenity,God grant me the serenity,to accept the things I cannot change. the courage to change the things I can,and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time,enjoying one moment at a time. accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,taking as Jesus did. this sinful world as it is,not as I would have it,trusting that You will make all things right. if I surrender to Your will,so that I may be reasonably happy in this life. and supremely happy with You forever in the next,Reinhold Niebuhr. 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 12 6 13 12 12 39 PM. Celebrate Recovery s,Small Group Guidelines, The following five guidelines will ensure that your small group is a. safe place They need to be read at the beginning of every meeting. 1 Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Limit your sharing to three to five minutes, 2 There is NO cross talk Cross talk is when two individuals engage. in conversation excluding all others Each person is free to express. his or her feelings without interruptions, 3 We are here to support one another not fix another. 4 Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements What is. shared in the group stays in the group The only exception is when. someone threatens to injure themselves or others, 5 Offensive language has no place in a Christ centered recovery. 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 13 6 13 12 12 39 PM. 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 14 6 13 12 12 39 PM. Principle 4 Openly examine and confess my faults to myself to. God and to someone I trust,Happy are the pure in heart Matthew 5 8. Step 5 We admitted to God to ourselves and to another human. being the exact nature of our wrongs, Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each. other so that you may be healed James 5 16,Think About It. After writing an inventory we must deal with what we have written. The first way we do that is to confess our sins to God Let s review the. acrostic for CONFESS,Confess your shortcomings resentments and sins. God wants us to come clean We need to admit that what is wrong. is wrong We re guilty as charged We need to own up to the sins we. discovered in our inventory, Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper but the one who. confesses and renounces them finds mercy Proverbs 28 13. 0310689635 GettingRightGod int CS5 indd 15 6 13 12 12 39 PM.
