An Advocate – I John 2

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

“But if anyone does isn, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (I John 2:1).

This is one of the greatest mysteries under heaven – that an innocent and holy Jesus should take in hand to plead for such an one before a just and righteous God; that he should plead for such an one against Satan’s accusation, and effectually rescue and get him off from his crimes and the curse of which he was truly guilty by the verdict of the law.

John Bunyan, Works, 1:153-160 (Voices from the Past, Banner printing)
