1 John 2:1-2 (ESV)

Christ Our Advocate

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

Our biggest comfort when we sin is our bigger savior, Jesus Christ.

  • Jesus is the one who makes you God’s child.
  • Jesus is our advocate with the Father.
  • Jesus is “Jesus Christ the Righteous“.
  • Jesus is our propitiation.
  • Jesus is a world-size savior.
