We Have an Advocate

John has a pastor’s heart. He cares about us and our relationship with God. He starts out “my little children.” This is the tender heart of an older pastor who sees his flock through the eyes of a father. What matters most to John is our fellowship with our eternal heavenly Father. And that is why he has so much to say about sin, because sin is the one thing that breaks our fellowship with our Father. This is why he is so earnest, please don’t sin, it breaks the most important relationship you can ever have. John wants our fellowship with God and our joy to be complete and sin will keep us from that. And this is why John’s words are so powerful and so beautiful, so full of heart-warming truth and hope. When we sin, we have an advocate before the judge of all sin.
