The sinners advocate



The sinner’s advocate

‘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.’ 
1 John 2:1

Suggested Further Reading: 
1 John 1:5–10

This truth, so evangelical and so divine, should be practically remembered. It should be practically remembered, dear friends, at all times. 

Every day I find it most healthy to my own soul to try and walk as a saint, but in order to do so I must continually come to Christ as a sinner.

 I would seek to be perfect; I would strain after every virtue, and forsake every false way; but still, as to my standing before God, I find it happiest to sit where I sat when I first looked to Jesus, on the rock of his works, having nothing to do with my own righteousness, but only with his. 

Depend on it, dear friends, the happiest way of living is to live as a poor sinner and as nothing at all, having Jesus Christ as your all in all. 

You may have all your growths in sanctification, all your progress in graces, all the development of your virtues that you will; but still I do earnestly pray you never to put any of these where Christ should be.

 If you have begun in Christ then finish in Christ. 
If you have begun in the flesh and then go on in the flesh, we know what the sure result will be. 

But if you have begun with Jesus Christ as your Alpha, let him be your Omega. 
I pray you never think you are rising when you get above this, for it is not rising, but slipping downwards to your ruin.
 Stand still to this—

‘Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to thy cross I cling.’

Still a sinner, but still having an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous—let this be the spirit of your everyday life.

For meditation: 

Three things about the Christian life which the Christian needs to remember at all times:- the fact of sin (1 John 1:8,10), the forgiveness of sin (1 John 1:7,9; 2:1–2) and the fight with sin (1 John 2:1). The first should protect us from pride, the second from despair and the third from licence. Forget any one of these and you are at risk.

you can be accepted into his kingdom.

what He always wanted.

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

 Amen
