Do you ever feel like no one understands you, no one is in your corner, taking up for you? You have no one to plead your case? In other words, you need an advocate.
1 John 2:1New King James Version (NKJV)
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.
If you are a child of God, when you mess up, you've got someone to help you make things right!
Jesus, who is fully God, yet also has experienced being fully man while here on earth. He has walked the same road you've walked. He knows the weaknesses of humans. He knows the temptations.
Because He knows, He is always praying for His children, always interceding for them.
Therefore, He is always able to save those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them.
Hebrews 7:25Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
When He pleads our case to the Father, He reminds God that He has already paid the price for any sin we have committed. If we repent, the price has already been paid.
You could never hire an attorney, mediator or advocate here on earth that could do that for you.
Be encouraged: He is on your side!
