THE ADVOCATE

1 Jn 2:1-6

Last week we spoke of heavy things, and it was for the most part, dark. Our main focus as guided by the section of 1 John we looked at was facing the reality of sin and how walking in sin is proof that one is not a Christian and anyone who does walk in sin while wearing the label “Christian” is deeply deceived. This week we look at the other side of the coin. We will review John’s reasons for writing to “us” and look at one of works of the resurrected Christ, that of advocate. Further we will examine what “propitiation” is and to what human extent that work of Christ applies. Next we will look at the positive side of what we discussed last week in regards to how we “keep his commandments.” Briefly we will discuss what it means to have “perfected love” and then understand what it means to walk as Jesus walked. I hope this message will be an encouragement and joy to you all.
