From Fitzpatrick and Johnson's book, Counsel from the Cross:
1. Confess our sins to God (openly and freely), while praying to God for the grace of the Holy Spirit to strive against them.
2. Thank God for our ongoing struggle with sin because, when rightly viewed, it makes us love and appreciate Jesus Christ more.
3. Strive to put off our sin and obey all the moral law in the light of God's ongoing forgiveness, love, and grace.
Do you, like me, find it much easier to practice points 1 & 3 than point 2?
