As this chapter brought to my mind, of God’s great love for Man:
The true meaning of how much Jesus gave for us is almost hard to fathom.
The thought and mediation that struck me was service. (will loving service help to deliver people from there addictions? YES
The founders of AA found their freedom through service to others with addictions, and working the 12 steps.
Christ's ministry was a ministry of service to others. When we step outside of ourselves and see with the eyes of Jesus, we see his unconditional love for man. We make a choice to not focus on the defect of addiction, but rather on the saving grace and power of Christ.
Satan would have us confused on this matter. He wants us to see God as a harsh judge.
We will read that Jesus, as the Son of God, came to reveal the Father’s Character of love.
I am excited to see how Gods love creates in my heart to focus on Him on my self.
