"It is not the healthy who need
a doctor, but the sick.
I have not come to call the righteous, but
ever eat or drink more calories than
your body needs? Do you ever feel
you ought to exercise but don't? Do
you ever know the right thing to do
but don't do it? Do you ever know
something is wrong but do it anyway?
If you answered yes to any of the
questions above, you'll know without
a doubt that you are a citizen of
the human race. As fellow members of
the human race, we all deal with
life's hurts, hang-ups, and habits.
And Jesus, who left heaven to become
one of us so that He could minister
to those needs, said, "It is not the
healthy who need a doctor, but the
sick. I have not come to call the
righteous, but sinners." (Mark
2007, Life's Healing Choices, p. ix)
River Valley Christian Fellowship,
we take these words seriously. We've
learned that every single person -
as a member of the human race -
deals with a hurt, a hang-up, or a
habit at some level, in some form.
Celebrate Recovery meets every
Friday night at River Valley
Christian Fellowship in Bourbonnais.
