Breaking the law
Friday, May 06, 2016
When we break the law and have to appear in court if we can't afford an attorney the court will assign a public defender to represent you.
We have not obeyed God's law and will one day appear in His courtroom. We are in the terrible predicament of being sinners who must one day give an account to a holy God for our sinful actions. What hope do we have of surviving the judgment day that God says is coming? The only hope in all the world is that your sins were paid for by Christ when He died on the cross. Because if Christ died for you, then he has taken upon himself the punishment for your sins.
Listen to what the Word of God says in 1 John 2:1-2; "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]. And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world.”
What is your hope? Will you stand before God on your own, or are you represented in the finished work of Christ?
