Christ, our lawyer

Many times when our faith is not mature in the Lord we tend to commit certain things that are wrong and we think that there is no forgiveness for us, and there are those who choose to get out of the way with the thought that they are no longer accepted before the Lord. I have known people like that, I remember once a friend who failed before the Lord and then never got up again, but this happens many times because we have not yet understood the depth of Christ’s love and the meaning of His death on the cross.

John wrote inspired by the Lord:

1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.

1 John 2:1-3

The first thing is that we as Christians must do everything possible to not to sin, to keep ourselves in a full life and in holiness before the Lord. But, we must also understand that we are human and that we can make mistakes, but making mistakes is not a reason to isolate us from the Lord, to turn us away from these paths, but we must understand that in those moments we have a lawyer before God, which is Jesus Christ the righteous.

The Bible teaches us that we will not be saved by works but by grace, that is, this means that in a certain way salvation does not depend on us, it depends on the work of Christ completed on the cross, and that is why John says in Verse two: “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world“.

Christ gave His life for us, on our behalf, to free us from death and sin, and through that death on the cross Christ forgave our sins and that is why we should not be afraid to approach God when we fail, we just have to go before Him, confess our sins and ask for enough strength to never fall into the same.

May the God of peace restore us in these moments and always put us on the path.

    CHRIST, OUR LAWYER

    He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2:2)
    Men and women are sensitive people who feel pain, or pleasure basically. In general people prefer to enjoy than to suffer as a result of stimulus we receive in our body or soul.

    In such a way we have been created by our Sovereign God, who made us perfect and good until the day we rebelled against Him.

    To the Lord be honor, praise and glory for ever.
    He is Holy, perfect and we are born with the seed of evil in us, we are bent to love ourselves before any other, from our nature we do not love God, neither are we able to love Him, nor our neighbor.

    And in this point we need the Bible that shows us, THE LAW OF GOD.
    The law of God reflects the character of Him, his justice, his severity, his mercy, his goodness, his love.
    GOD IS LOVE, the Bible tells us.

    We are not able to keep the commands of God, the Law, but he wants us to take it as our guide, as the way, the adviser to please Him, a God who is a spiritual being that is Holy, perfect, pure, almighty, marvellous… there is no One like him, our blessed God.

    We trespass His Law, which is contrary to our human nature, then, we sin against the God of love. He is just and he, in his own right, commands his creatures to keep his Law, that is good for them.

    All people on this World must bear in mind, respect, keep these commands of the Lord. By the Law shall all people live, in all ages of humanity, and they shall be judged by it. All people in the World have sinned against God, because there is no good man or woman who can keep the Law.

    Because God is merciful and loves the world, he prepared the way of grace, remission, forgiveness of sin through his Only Begotten Son, by faith on Jesus Christ, who will be our judge, our Lawyer also. He is our defender, our lawyer, our saviour.

    It is written that
    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
    John 3:16

    May we praise the Lord God for he loved us. His will be our Lawyer and Saviour in the last day. Amen
