Step One thought and scripture – Day 5.
Step One in Alcoholics Anonymous
Admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step One in Living Free
I now see [admit] that I, of myself, am powerless, unable to control [manage] my life by myself.
If you want to live a sober, successful, and fulfilled life you must be willing to lay aside your life and let Christ live through you.
New Living Translation (NLT)
24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. 25 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?
