Devotion of the Day

IF ANY MAN SIN

If any man sin…
I John 2:1

If we confess our sins…
I John 1:9

If we walk in the light…
I John 1:7

We should not sin, but if we do sin we have an Advocate with the Father. We have a prosecutor, and an accuser, the devil; but we also have a lawyer to plead our case, Jesus Christ the righteous.

If we confess our sins the Father will forgive and cleanse. There must be genuine repentance and confession, but we need not wallow in remorse. God is our Father, if we believe and we are His children. And like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him.

“If we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another; and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Provision has been made for victory over sin. God’s plan is to keep us from sin, not to keep us in sin. There is no ground for complacent living in iniquity just because we are “under the blood.” “It is not that we are not able to sin but that we are able not to sin.” But He also has made provision if we do sin, forgiveness and cleansing if we confess.
