1 John 2:1 (AMPC) My little children, I write you these things so that you may not violate God’s law and sin. But if anyone should sin, we have an Advocate (One Who will intercede for us) with the Father—[it is] Jesus Christ [the all] righteous [upright, just, Who conforms to the Father’s will in every purpose, thought, and action].
BUT - this word is small yet has great value. God does not want us to sin, BUT if we do, we have Jesus praying for us, standing in the gap for us, next to God the Father saying, I died for them! My blood was poured out on the cross for them! They are not to be condemned, they have forgiveness in Me for what I did at Calvary! So my question to you today is, are you asking for forgiveness and receiving His unconditional love? Or are you listening to the lies of the enemy and feeling full of guilt, shame and condemnation? How much time do you spend in a pity party for the mistakes you've made in life?
We aren't a perfect people, but we should desire to live holy and righteous before God. If you have sin in your life, God wants to help you! If you have an addiction, God wants to set you free! Christ died for so much more than a ticket to paradise, you can actually enjoy life on this earth! Yes, this sin-filled earth can be enjoyable when you are living for on mission for Jesus.
God wants to use you to help others and grow His kingdom. Have you accepted that invitation? Have you poured your heart out to Him? He will not share your secrets or your past, He will not be surprised or embarrassed by things you have done. He is a proud Father waiting to spend time with His children. Bring your heart to the table of grace and see what absolute peace feels like, see how amazing love washes over you like a tidal wave of forgiveness. Run into the arms of your Father, weep before Him, hold nothing back! This is where your breakthrough will begin!
Romans 8:34 (TPT) Who then is left to condemn us? Certainly not Jesus, the Anointed One! For he gave his life for us, and even more than that, he has conquered death and is now risen, exalted, and enthroned by God at his right hand. So how could he possibly condemn us since he is continually praying for our triumph?
