1 John – Part 3 – Jesus is Our Advocate

What do we do when we sin? Even as children of God, we stumble and fall time and time again. John addresses this issue in the 2nd chapter of 1 John. He wants to give encouragement to children of God. This new life in Christ Jesus is a new way to live – by faith. The core of our Christian life is to simply trust. Everything else then falls into place. Jesus is our advocate. He offered his blood once for all. He is the victor over the one who accuses us. God loves us. We are always in his favor. Our sin doesn’t cause him to turn his back on us. Jesus is our comforter and encourager, continually pointing us to his finished work on our behalf.
