Jesus Our Advocate [2]

Tuesday 2nd April 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Hebrews 4:1-16

Topic:- Jesus Our Advocate [2]

Text:- Hebrews 4:16

By Kenneth E. Hagin:

As our advocate, Jesus restores to us our lost sense of righteousness, for He said, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.” See 1 John 1:9.
But He does more than just forgive us of our sins; He cleanses us from all unrighteousness. He cleanses us from that sin-consciousness or spiritual inferiority complex that would keep us from going into God’s Presence.
There are those who live under a cloud of fear. They say things like, “I am so afraid of displeasing the Lord. If Jesus comes, I might not make it. I don’t know if I am ready or not.” And they are robbed of their joy in Christ. They are afraid that God is mad at them and will not have anything to do with them.
We do not have to live under such a cloud of fear and gloominess. We can know that if we have failed—if we are Christians—our hearts will be grieved about it. If you can keep sinning and failing, however, and are not grieved about it, you had better check up on your conversion experience. If you have been born again and have the life and nature of God in you, you don’t want to do wrong.
Many times new Christians miss God’s will and sin in ways they are not even aware of, but they are walking in the light they do have. See 1 John 1:7.
As I look back now, after nearly seventy years of being a Christian, I can see that I missed God many times when I didn’t even know it. At the time, I walked in what light I had, and the blood of Jesus Christ cleansed me from things I didn’t know about.
I can remember the first time I was conscious of the fact I had done wrong after I became a Christian. It nearly broke my heart.
If a believer is tempted and Satan gains mastery over him in something, when the believer cries out for mercy, he can hear Christ whisper, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” See 1 John 1:9.
And then we also can hear Him say in this marvelous scripture from Hebrews 4:16. It is mercy that we need when we have sinned. As long as we are doing right, we can get by on justice. We have a High Priest who also stands in this office of Advocate. Grace is unmerited favor. When you fail is the time you need grace; that’s when you need mercy. See Hebrews 4:14,16.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, You are my advocate, and You died for me, thank You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, delivered me from sinning and deliver sin from me henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. I command, sin shall not have dominion over me again, never henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Tuesday!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
