“Do not minimize your sin or excuse it away. Raise no defense. Simply take it to the one who is already at the right hand of the Father, advocating for you on the basis of His own wounds. Let your own unrighteousness, in all your darkness and despair, drive you to Jesus Christ, the righteous, in all His brightness and sufficiency.”
(Dane Ortlund – Gentle and Lowly)
We tend to forget that our Savior is our great Defender and Advocate – so that whenever the evil one would seek to condemn us for our continuing sinfulness, Jesus is right there with His nail scarred hands showing the Father that the penalty for our sin has been paid in full and that Satan has no argument that can convince the Lord otherwise.
