Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs continued in the Breathing Underwater series, wrapping it up by looking at Steps 10, 11, and 12—sometimes referred to as “The Maintenance Steps.” These last three steps are ongoing, promote continual growth, and extend our reliance on God. In other words, the last steps are what could be described as discipleship, the being and doing of a follower of Christ. We are called to: continue growing in knowledge and understanding of who God is, stay alert and stand firm against the enemy, be confident that God will finish what he started, pray for God’s continuous attention and help, and meditate on Scripture to invite the Holy Spirit into our understanding of God and ourselves.
Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out.
Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
