JESUS CHRIST STRENGTHENS YOU IN GOD!
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world (1 John 2:1-2).
Jesus Christ who is our Advocate with the Father is always there to strengthen us in God. The Bible says in the opening text that my little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ who is the Advocate with the Father is the One that strengthens him in life. Every Christian needs to be strengthened daily in life. It absolutely takes the grace of God for one’s life to be strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit in life forever.
Jesus Christ promised in His Word to always be with you in order to strengthen and empower you as long as you remain faithful to His Great Mandate in life thus, “…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). Therefore, it is the duty of a Christian to always teach God’s Mandate to the unbelievers and the world in general. Except a Christian is being strengthened by Jesus Christ, he can never succeed in his Christian’s pilgrimage in life. Hence, it is the absolute grace and strength of God Almighty that makes a Christian to indeed succeed in life and ministry forever.
In fact, Jesus Christ who is our Great High Priest knows our weaknesses by experience in life. He therefore sympathizes by strengthening us daily in our faith in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 4:15, “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.” In fact, Jesus Christ who is our Great High Priest once lived in the flesh and went through all the life’s challenges, trials and temptations just like us in life. Therefore, He is more than qualified to be our Advocate and High Priest in life forever.
Daily Tip: We have an Advocate and High Priest who is always there to strengthen and empower us in time of needs and challenges in life and ministry forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
