Principle # 7
#7 Live for God
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.
We have to decide how we are going to live God's way. It's one thing to say it, another to live it! That is what this step is all about. We want to have the tools to continue to live God's way and not fall back into our own pattern of doing things. (Because that always got us so far!) This is the crossroads of authentic and life changing faith. The easy road is the road that leads us back into doing things our way. God's road is going to be filled with choices that will go against the grain of the world and how you have learned to live life. The tools given are simple; Spending time with Him on your own, examining your life continually, reading the Bible, and praying.
This is the step we have to stop and check the condition of our heart. Have we allowed the proper healing to take place so that we may be ready to share this message with others.
