A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. God is called our Advocate, not just our judge. What does that mean for you today.
  3. Scripture
    1. 1 John 2:1
    2. My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
  4. Devotional
    1. Our Advocate
    2. Have you thought much about what it means to have an advocate or especially what it means for God to be your advocate?
      1. Definition: a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.
      2. A person who supports others to make their voices heard, or ideally for them to speak up for themselves.
      3. An advocate is a type of professional person in several different legal systems and it is also a commonly used honorific for remarkable lawyers, such as in "Adv. Sir Alberico Gentili". The broad equivalent in many English law-based jurisdictions can be a barrister. However, advocate is also a word to indicate lawyers of superior classification.
    3. Why might having God as an advocate be important to us?
      1. Throughout the Bible we read about a final judgment based on our actions during our life
      2. Those actions hinge on our belief in Jesus, the second person of the triune-Godhead, the Son of God. God incarnate, come to earth to die as the penalty we should pay for our sins
      3. If we believe in God, the Son, for forgiveness of our sins, He acts as our Advocate, our lawyer, our defender in the final judgment before God, the Father
      4. We are found “Not Guilty” before the law that establishes the judgment for our sins
      5. Just like our courts today, we are not found innocent, because we have all sinned, but we are found “Not Guilty” because our penalty has been paid, our punishment has been served, our sentence has been satisfied
      6. Our advocate points out the blood spilled on our behalf and the change in verdict that should be applied because of the sentence He served in our stead
    4. Jesus, our Advocate, the perfect defender, our lawyer in the final judgment who prepares the brief and wins our pardon because of His actions 2,000 years ago
      1. Jesus is the judge but He is also our Advocate
      2. When we believe in Him for our salvation we do not lose our case before the judgment seat
      3. He finds us not guilty
      4. Just imagine
    5. Think about God our advocate today as you worship Him
  5. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."
