Day 8 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent.

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. -1 John 2:1‭-‬2 

Thank You my Lord for being my Advocate with the Father. Thank You for being my lawyer, my lawyer like no other. You enter my guilty plea and then pay the penalty for my crimes, appeasing the just demands of a Holy God. Justice  says the soul that sins must die and that the wages of sin is death, seperation from God both now and eternally. Seated at the right hand of the Father,  Your pierced hands, feet and side are visual reminders that my debt has been paid in full by You and You alone, the only Righteous One.  At Your cross justice and mercy are displayed in their fullness. The sinner that I am is provided salvation by the Savior that You are. I am in awe. In Your Name. Amen.
