Step 6

Overcome

Were entirely ready to have God remove
all these defects of character.

 

Step 6:  Overcome

In the sixth step, we start to use the findings of our inventory to examine the impact our life had on our character. We begin to see areas of our life that need to change and things that we can improve upon. We can take the wreckage of our past and use it to strengthen our future.

In this step, we will look at the positive and negative characteristics, take a look at our motives, and prepare our hearts for change.

Of course we won’t be able to change everything at once, but the point is that we become willing. God will show us over time which defects are ready to be worked on and it is here that we prepare for the work ahead… what ever it may be.
