We admit the reality that we are powerless over our addictions, brokenness and sinful patterns—that in our own power, our lives are 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.”
We come to regard God as the only one whose power can fully restore us.
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
We decide to fully rely on God by accepting His grace through Jesus Christ.
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”
We make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.”
We reveal to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our sins.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If
we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:7-9
“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”
We become entirely ready to turn away from our patterns of sin and turn to God.
“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
2 Timothy 2:22
We humbly ask God’s Spirit to revise our hearts and minds in order to follow Christ fully.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions
and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”
We forgive those who have harmed us and become willing to make amends to those we have harmed.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
We make direct restitution whenever possible, submitting to God, His Word and biblical counsel.
“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
We continually examine our lives and when we sin, promptly confess and turn to walk with Christ.
“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
We seek to deepen our relationship with God daily through Scripture reading and prayer and to solely depend on his power to do his will.
“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”
Because of our new lives in Christ, we carry God’s message of reconciliation to others and practice these biblical principles in every aspect of our lives.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
