10 July 2023 ‘We have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.’ 1 John 2:1 NASB

Do you ever wonder if God really loves you? If so, listen to these words: ‘If anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.’ When your thoughts sink to gutter level and your actions are anything but Christlike, remind yourself: ‘He lives forever to intercede with God on [our] behalf’ (Hebrews 7:25 NLT). It works like this: when you’ve sinned according to God’s law, Jesus steps in and says, ‘Father, I have this person covered; they’re trusting in my shed blood, and My righteousness has been transferred to them.’ In the Old Testament tabernacle, the blood of a lamb was poured on top of the mercy seat, and the ark of the covenant that contained the broken law – the record of our guilt – was placed underneath it. So, the only way God could see the broken law was through the blood. And it’s the same today! If you’re wondering why and how God continues to love, accept, and bless you, it’s because Jesus is your lawyer! First, He is fully qualified to represent you. ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’ (Matthew 3:17 KJV). Second, He has never lost a case. ‘He is…able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him’ (Hebrews 7:25 NKJV). And third, He offers His services freely. ‘Without money and without price’ (Isaiah 55:1 KJV). The Bible says, ‘Let us…approach God’s throne of grace with confidence…that we may receive mercy and…grace to help us in our time of need’ (Hebrews 4:16 NIV). Jesus is your lawyer, so you can come to God with confidence today.
