1 John: Assurance through Allegiance & Abiding

11.11.18 - 1 John 2:1-6

May we find ourselves truly in awe of what is being said in 1 John 2:102 this morning! If you trusted in Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you have an advocate with the Father. John reveals Jesus to be our helper, the One who appears in our behalf. He is our righteous representative, the only One who can make us righteous before God. How? By living the sinless life and servings as the propitiation for our sins. Jesus went to the Cross on our behalf to satisfy God's wrath against human sin. As Isaiah tells us in Isaiah 53:5: But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

1 John 2:1-2 tell us the entire Gospel story! Jesus lived the life we should have lived, but failed to live due to our sin; He died the death we deserved to die (in our place); and He was raised and ascended to the right hand of the Father where he represents those who trust in Him. All glory be to our righteous King - Jesus Christ! Amen!
