PRAYER: Please pray for another woman who recently wrote to me about losing her son to an overdose. Pray for peace in her life.
DEVOTION: “My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.” – 1 John 2:1
Can this even be real? This verse. Incredible. That Jesus pleads our case before the Father. Really? How is that even possible? But…it is.
Pleading our case. Acting on our behalf. This leaves me speechless.
Jesus. How do we thank you? We mess up, fall down, disobey and who knows what else. Yet, you are here, pleading our case.
Go read that verse again. Believe it.
Jesus. Thank you for your love and mercy.
