This week Pastor Mark Tiefel takes us into a study of the title for Jesus - "Advocate." The title comes from 1 John 2:1 where we are told that we have "an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous." As our advocate, Jesus takes our place, He stands in for us before our Father in Heaven. His work of righteousness becomes ours by faith. His death pays the debt of our sin. He intercedes for us and pleads our case, not on the basis of our righteousness, but His! What a comfort to know that Jesus, the righteous One, is on our side, representing us before God!
