Jesus is Our Advocate, September 20, 2015

1 John 2:1-6
An advocate is a person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, or cause. It’s someone who will present someone else’s case.
John 14:1-4, 15-18, 23-27; 16:7-11
This the Holy Spirit comes along side of us, to live in side of us to do:
1. teach us
2. remind us
3. testify (John 15:26)
4. convict us
“Christ is good and holy and pure; to reject him is to convict oneself of being opposed to goodness and holiness and purity and love.” (Erdman)
In the New Testament, the word advocate no only means the “called alongside one”, but there is a purpose to his being there: to assist, to comfort, to counsel, to defend, to intercede on behalf of another
“The Holy Spirit is God’s advocate on earth with men. While Christ is mans’ advocate with the Father in heaven.
John 8:1-11
The attitude of an advocate, of mercy, grace, love, forgiveness is Jesus our Advocate
