“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1 (ESV)
Jesus came to earth to save us from our sins by trading His Heavenly glory for our earthly limitations. Jesus did what we could not and would not, in meeting the sacrifice for humanity’s fall, in order that we may be redeemed for eternity. Our Savior understands our frailty and advocates on our behalf, pleading His righteousness in our judgement.
Let’s pray today that we may trust in Christ’s righteousness and be confident in His willingness to advocate in our behalf.
