Steps to Take as You Follow Christ
Ask—From what do I need Jesus to save me?
Seek—God’s forgiveness for your sins. Ask God to transform you
into the image of his Son, so that you may be an instrument of
God’s grace to others.
Knock—Meditate on 1 Corinthians 6:9–11. St. Paul presents a
list of those unfit for the kingdom of God. What about each sin
alluded to in the list might point to someone worshipping something
or someone other than God? Is there a particular sin that
you struggle with in the list? How is your life different in Christ?
Transform Your Life—Make a good examination of conscience
and plan to go to confession on a regular occasion, perhaps once
a month. Try to make your confession sincere, letting go of your
attempts to control your own life, and a real surrender to the
grace of Jesus Christ. Vow to Christ to trust in his mercy to truly
transform your life.
