You Have an Advocate - July 12, 2019

Not all guilt is bad.  God uses appropriate doses of guilt to awaken us to sin!  God’s guilt brings enough regret to change us!  Satan’s guilt on the other hand, brings enough regret to enslave us. Don’t let Satan lock his shackles on you.

Colossians 3:3 reminds us, “your life is hidden with Christ in God.”  When God looks at you, he sees Jesus first.  In the Chinese language the word for “righteousness” is a combination of two characters, the figure of a lamb and a person.  The lamb is on top, covering the person.  Whenever God looks down on you, he sees the perfect Lamb of God covering you.

It boils down to this choice: Do you trust your Advocate—Jesus or your Accuser—Satan?  Give no heed to Satan’s voice.  You have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous!
