Memory Verse Monday – Week 26

My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1

 

As you begin reading 1 John, John talks about sin and righteousness, light and dark, truth and lie, boiling down to 1 John 1:9. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

 

He states a bunch of facts in 1 John. If we say we have fellowship with Him but walk in darkness, we don’t practice the truth. If we say we don’t have sin, we deceive ourselves. Although these are realities, John reminds his readers that the purpose he is writing to them is that they may turn away from such sin. Yes, it’s difficult. But the truth is, we don’t have to remain in it. The sooner we realize our folly and ask for forgiveness, He is ready to forgive us.

I love the word advocate used here to describe Jesus Christ. An advocate is someone who speaks in favor of or recommends publicly. He is doing that for you and for me, in front of the throne of our Heavenly Father.

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
