Live It! A Battle Plan for Purity – Amendment

April 17, 2018

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will let you dwell in this place.” – Jeremiah 7:3

Live It! Tip of the Week:
Come to God in prayer and ask for the grace of sorrow for your sins and wisdom to know what specific action you need to take to avoid these sins in the future. Seek the advice of your spouse or a trusted friend or mentor if needed. Then make a firm purpose of amendment to take that action this week, trusting in God’s power and mercy. If you have not done so, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Lord Jesus, Your resurrection makes clear Your victory over all sin and death. You are the Almighty, O Lord, and Your perfect love casts out all fear! Help me to recognize and have sorrow for my sin, come to You for forgiveness, and take action to amend my ways and join You in the battle against all that is opposed to real love. Amen.
