We Have an Advocate

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-9

I am thankful that I have a God who watches over me. No matter what situation I may find myself in, he is God. God is a spirit. He loved us enough to manifest himself in flesh and take on the form of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the “begotten” son. He had a beginning in his flesh, but he is eternal. When he rose from the grave on the third day, he had taken the keys of death, hell, and the grave, and paid the price for our sins. In John 3:16, it says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Lord takes care of his children:

“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:

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:1-2).

In this week’s Lattereign we find out more about how God takes care of us.

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
