Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 13th November 2021 Saturday Message

TOPIC: Our Advocate

SCRIPTURE: “We have one who speaks to the Father in our defence – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” – 1 John 2:1

MESSAGE

An advocate is a person who pleads for another’s cause. But Jesus, our advocate, adds a twist. He pleads his own cause. And he does so to our advantage.

For instance, picture a throne room with the Devil reading a list of charges against you. He throws you an accusing glance and sneers, “This wretch deserves to die. He says he’s a Christian but his life stinks. He claims to know Jesus but you’d never be able to tell from the way he acts.”

Now picture Jesus stepping forward as your advocate. He speaks confidently and with authority, saying, “This person is mine. I died for every sin he ever committed.” That would be enough, but then Christ adds an amazing announcement: “What’s more, I’ve not only erased his debt, but I want you, Father, to credit to his account all of my righteousness.”

Jesus, our advocate, would be generous enough in cancelling the debt of our sin on the cross. But he went further. He not only paid the penalty and cleared sin’s slate, but he also gave us his right standing, his goodness. When the Father looks at you, he sees all the good things his Son has ever done.

Such a debt we can never repay. We can only praise.

“Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.” (Job 16:19-21)

Blessed is “the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: ‘Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.’” (Romans 4:6-7)

PRAYER: I kneel in my heart, Lord Jesus, at all that you’ve given me. Forgiveness of sin. And righteousness with our Father.
