Jesus my Lawyer, my Righteousness

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”- 1 John 2:1

An advocate is someone who speaks on behalf of another person, especially in a legal context.

Jesus’ blood has spoken for the world, you and I. He has fought the devil and won and upon that winning He has granted you and I release from all sins and all bondages of sin. Jesus really loves us and just because He loves us and shed His blood for us, does not give us the right to continue in sin. If we do sin, we can come to God through Jesus and ask for forgiveness. God gives us this forgiveness because He loves us. Jesus is righteous and He covers us with His righteousness. We must continue to stay clothed in righteousness daily.

We forget sometimes to wear our breastplate of righteousness and we walk right into sin. Sometimes we wear our breastplate of righteousness but we take it off when a battle comes on and we began to sin by getting into our flesh. Look at righteousness like this…

If a warrior were to leave behind his breastplate then his heart would be exposed to anyone that would try to kill him. The heart was a guaranteed kill. Well, just like this warrior we are to wear the breastplate of righteousness or else the enemy (Devil) will attack our heart. As Christians we are attacked daily. The place we are attacked the greatest is our heart. I am not talking about your flesh heart, but your spiritual heart. If you are being attacked and you stand against the onslaught of the attack, then you will defeat the enemy. If you get attacked and you start to pull off your breastplate of righteousness then your heart will come under attack and you will become weak and find yourself sinning again.

Make a conscious choice and sin not. When you become weak remember…2 Corinthians 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

When the devil attacks and you sense yourself getting ready to sin, SAY NO my weapons of warfare are mighty through God and they are used to pull down the strongholds in my life. If you do sin, go straight to the Father because you have a great advocate with the Father, His name is Jesus and He can cover you.

You are a winner not a loser!

Jesus is Lord!

    Hey Pastor Phil:

    You are the bomb! Thanks for sharing the light of Jesus! Yes, the spiritual heart is attacked so continuously if you are doing ANYTHING for Jesus. I am glad for the Breast Plate of Righteousness…Without it, I would have fainted, but with GOD, I can do all things!
