“If anyone does sin, we have an advocate.” 1Jn 2:1 NLT

 

The moon and stars you can see on a clear night are mere drops in the vast sea of the universe. Our sun is one of more than 100 billion stars that make up the Milky Way galaxy. And there may be as many as 100 billion other galaxies—billions of which may have hundreds of millions of planets like ours. The Hubble Space Telescope relays images of galaxies as far away as twelve billion light years—that’s twelve billion times six trillion miles! And all this was created because God uttered one sentence: “Let there be” (See Gen 1). But here’s something even more amazing: The One who created it all loves you and cares about every detail of your life. When you are weak, He is strong. When you blow it, He forgives you. The Bible says, “If anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins” (1Jn 2:1-2 NLT). God’s grace is truly amazing, and you don’t have to do anything to deserve it. Because God is your Father, you can call home anytime and find a welcome. You’re “connected” to the One who “understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most” (Heb 4:15-16 NLT). You’re connected to unending mercy and grace—how awesome is that?
