Here’s a little scripture to bless you through your day.
1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Remember always…..WE HAVE this advocate. Those words “we have” are present active indicative. This means that it is a present reality for us. WE HAVE this advocate right now!
This advocate is none other than Jesus Christ, man’s advocate with the Father. This term “advocate” comes from the same Greek word that is applied to the Holy Ghost, but here it refers to Jesus Christ, showing us the unity between these persons of the Godhead. He (Jesus) is qualified to plead your case in the Father’s presence this morning. So as you go through your life and you encounter situations (maybe it will be today), please keep in mind that if you have the blood of Christ applied to your life by faith, this advocate will procure your continued forgiveness as you confess your sins.
May your day be richly blessed.
