4-30-15 Our Advocate

Jesus Advocate 03

Have faith in Jesus and His precious blood,

For He that died for you is still at work;

He knows that you while here walk through the mud

And can’t avoid all sin when in this murk.

So justified by Christ’s own righteousness,

The Spirit will convict you of your sin;

Then go to God in prayer your sin confess,

And Christ, the Perfect One, will step right in.

He bore the sins of you and everyone,

And took them to the cross for all our sake.

We have an advocate with God: the Son;

The feast in Heaven we can then partake.

When you give Christ your heart He’ll vouch for you;

His word’s as good as gold, He’s tried and true.

1 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:

2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

1 John 2:1-2 KJV

1-16-15 Fellowship

Tripod-of-Life_Holy-Trinity

To fellowship with God and Christ His Son

Is truly what we strive for every day,

For when we’re one with them as they are one

The Triune God will have His will and way.

Adopted by our God, He’s Father now,

So we draw near to Him through Jesus Christ,

And in His loving presence He’ll endow

His endless love of us so well sufficed.

In Jesus we partake the bread of life;

His boundless love does pulse within our veins

To send us to a world of pain and strife

To rescue more of His that still remains.

In God the Father and in God the Son

In God the Holy Ghost we all are One.

~~~~~~~~~~~

… truly our fellowship is with the Father,

and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:3 KJV
