About this Item

STEPS is a gospel-centered recovery resource that takes people to the root of sin and suffering and leads them to embrace the freedom found only in Christ's redemption. Based on a successful program at The Village Church and featuring teaching videos from Pastor Matt Chandler, this 13-session discipleship tool is essential for Christian counselors, support groups, and recovery ministries.

Most people hear the word recovery and think of major addictions. But we all wrestle with something: anger, gossip, greed, and more. To embrace the freedom found only in Christ's redemption, we must get to the root of sin and suffering. Building on the incomplete truths of traditional recovery programs, STEPS helps disciples see these truths through the light of Scripture and a personal relationship with Jesus.

This group-use bundle includes 12 teaching videos created to be used as an integral part of the STEPS experience.

Session 1: Creation and Fall (50:12)

This session lays out God's good plan for all creation, highlighting the dignity and worth He bestowed on human beings and His intent for us to bring glory to His name. When human beings chose to sin, we placed ourselves in a position of rebellion against God that merits death. As children of wrath, we need redemption that we cannot provide for ourselves.

Session 2: The Remedy: The Gospel (46:55)

In our enslavement to sin, we run to created things, pursuing and sacrificing for what we think will satisfy us. Yet the result is further brokenness. Jesus reaches into this cycle and offers the gospel, the only remedy for our enslavement to sin. On the cross Jesus paid the price for our freedom and redeemed us from sin.

Session 3: The Response: Repentance (35:12)

God has commanded all of us to repent of our sin. Because Jesus sacrificed His life on the cross, the righteous for the unrighteous, we can be purified by grace through faith. His offer of grace is not permission to pursue sin but a call out of those things to repent and to change. We constantly war against temptation by repenting and turning to God.

Session 4: The Result: Justification, Adoption, and Sanctification (34:30)

This session provides a biblical understanding of salvation, defining key terms that summarize God's transforming work in our lives: regeneration, conversion, justification, adoption, sanctification, and glorification. Once we have experienced the new birth, the Spirit of God continually works in our lives to repair the brokenness of our hearts, empowering us to fight against sin and grow in Christlikeness.

Session 5: Assessing Anger and Abuse (42:18)

This session guides participants to assess the presence and results of anger and abuse in their lives. While righteous anger reflects God's heart toward the subject of our anger, unrighteous anger reflects our idolatrous desires and our selfish attempts to rule our own lives. The devastating fruit of abuse can include pain, distorted thinking, and a victim mentality. Jesus not only identifies with our pain but also makes it possible for us to be made right with our Heavenly Father.

Session 6: Assessing Sex, Guilt, and Shame (34:11)

This session equips participants to come to terms with the effects of sexual immorality, guilt, and shame in their lives. Although we may have been guilty, Jesus has declared us innocent through His redemptive work on the cross. We are no longer depraved people but children of God. Because God has adopted us, we have been made new.

Session 7: Assessing Fear, Anxiety, and Grief (37:09)

This session guides participants to identify the presence of fear, anxiety, and grief in their lives. Our Heavenly Father is the God of all comfort. He loves us and is good, sovereign, and purposeful. If we are under His care, we have nothing to fear. We place our dependence not on ourselves and our ability to provide for ourselves but on the God who loves us and is sovereign.

Session 8: Getting to the Roots: Offering and Asking (48:46)

Too often we have believed the lie that we can circumvent God instead of going to Him for purpose, validation, and meaning. Yet we remain unfulfilled when we give to things and people the intimacy and worship intended for God. While the world, the flesh, and the devil seek to draw our attention away from God, we are called to continually renounce our old ways, uproot the lies by which we have been living, and plant our lives in the truth of the kingdom of God.

Session 9: Peacemaking, Part 1: Reconciling and Amending (39:23)

Peacemaking is an important outcome of the recovery process, but we must approach it biblically and from a clear understanding of our identity in Christ. Knowing we are children of God, we do not have to justify ourselves, present a sanctified image of ourselves, or approach another person with fear. The Bible instructs us to admit specific attitudes and actions, acknowledge hurt, express regret for the harm done, and turn and change in repentance.

Session 10: Peacemaking, Part 2: Confronting and Forgiving (39:21)

At times we must confront others in order to make peace. We confront them because God confronts us in our sin. When we see a brother or a sister who is sinning, we engage in love. And we forgive because we have been forgiven.

Session 11: Persevering and Pursuing (34:02)

The gospel fuels joy and faith to persevere in our Christian lives as Jesus increasingly becomes our treasure. Our union with Christ creates growth in His likeness, shapes the way we pursue Him, and fills us with a desire to persevere with joy. Spiritual disciplines give us valuable tools to pursue Christ, and even suffering affords us opportunities to know Him better.

Session 12: The Joy of Making Much of His Name (40:58)

In pursuing a relationship with us, God is extending an invitation not only to enter His joy but also to join Him in His work—the ministry of reconciliation. He wants us to take the story of redemption and hope that He has given us and to share the message that people can walk out of bondage and slavery and into the freedom of Christ. Our joy will be complete when we pass on the gospel to others.
