Jesus Our Advocate [3]

Wednesday 3rd April 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 1 John 2:1-17

Topic:- Jesus Our Advocate [3]

Text:- 1 John 2:1

By Kenneth E. Hagin:

This scripture in First John never was intended to encourage people to sin. John is simply telling us about God’s provision for sin. The Spirit of God will help us overcome sin—not encourage us to practice it! After all, John said, “These things write I unto you, that you sin not.”
In the first place, if a person is born again, i.e. if he has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, he doesn’t want to do wrong. But often the devil tempts him through his flesh and overcomes him because he is not strong spiritually.
For example, if it were just a fault that Paul was talking about in Galatians 6:1, we all would need restoring, and there wouldn’t be any spiritual people left to do the restoring. We all have faults.
God wants His people to be restored to full fellowship with Him. It is a different matter, however, when people do not want to be restored. If they want to be restored, it is our obligation to restore them in a spirit of meekness, not arrogance.
James 5:14-15 says, when it comes to healing, the possibility of sin in conjunction with sickness, and of forgiveness are in connection with healing.

By way of illustration, if a man were to speak sharply to his wife, he is not eternally lost because of it. He is, however, out of fellowship with her! He needs to get back in fellowship with her by apologizing and asking her forgiveness.
Well, 1 John 2:1 says, if we sin, we lose our sense of righteousness and cannot enter God’s Presence. Righteousness means right-standing with God. Righteousness means the ability to stand in the Presence of God without any inferiority complex, without a consciousness of sin. If you have sinned or failed, you cannot stand in the Presence of God without a consciousness of sin.
But there is One who can go in on your behalf, Jesus Christ, the Righteous. He is the propitiation, the substitute, for our sins; and not for our sins only, but for the sins of the whole world. See 1 John 2:1,2.

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 again, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Mid-Week!

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.
