Episode 71: Christ our Advocate – Rev. Dr. Kevin Payne

We have an advocate, a defender, a paraclete in Christ. Christ makes intercession for us before the Father. In his atoning sacrifice he takes our sin upon himself so that we might be clothed in his righteousness. When we stand before the Father it is through Christ we are forgiven. This is not the action of some tyrannical, dictatorial deity. Rather, this shows us the extent God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, goes to redeem a fallen creation. We never have to doubt if God is for us, for we know through the life and testimony of Jesus the Christ, our Advocate.
