God's Heart for His Children


9/30/2018 Jeff Schwarzentraub 1 John 2:1-6

God’s passion is for us, as His children, to not sin. Sin hinders our fellowship with God. Sin also has consequences and hurts others which leads to shame and blame. God’s provision when we do sin is Jesus Christ, our Advocate. Jesus moves towards us, even before we sin. Jesus not only has paid the penalty for our sin, died in our place, but also is our Advocate before the Father defending us before the perfect Judge. Obedience is the result of relationship. It is not about us trying hard to be obedient, and then gaining relationship with the Father. When we know God, love God, and realize we are redeemed, then obedience is a reality in our life.
