Awakening 2017 – Jan 30th

1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense ā€” Jesus Christ the Righteous One.

God’s plan for us is that we wouldn’t fall into sin. His desire is for us to be perfect as He is perfect. He wants us to fight temptation. A sinless saviour died in our place and exchanged His perfect righteous nature for our sinful nature. We now have the power to conquer sin. However if we do sin we have someone who understands – Jesus – He is now seated next to the Father speaking to the Father on our behalf. Making intercession and defending us. Mercy and Grace are available at the Throne. God doesn’t write you off when you mess up. He picks you up, brushes your down and says Go again, you can do this. Keep short accounts yes but keep a short memory on your failings. There is no condemnation in Christ.

Prayer Today: For us to walk in righteousness. For us to walk free from condemnation.
