1 John 2:1-2

1 John 2:1-2

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 (1 John 2:1-2).

How awesome is it that Jesus is our advocate? We learned last time that we should not sin, and if we keep sinning, we may be walking in darkness. But, we are still humans. Therefore we are going to sin from time to time. We can’t help it; it’s who we are. BUT, Jesus made a sacrifice for us that enables us to be forgiven–even if we sin after we become Christian. Is that a license to sin? Does that mean that sinning is favored? By no means!

Stay tuned for the next few verses as we expand on this concept further.
