Step Three thought and scripture – Day 5.
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
I now make a conscious decision to turn my entire will and life over to the care and direction of Jesus Christ as Teacher, Healer, Savior, and Lord.
Once we give our will and life over to the care of God, we are commanded to live according to His word. We cannot do this on our own, but God will give us the strength to live this new life.
1 Peter 1:13-16
New Living Translation (NLT)
13 So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. 14So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”
