Scripture of The Day: 31

1 John 2: 1-2

Good News Translation

Christ Our Helper
1 I am writing this to you, my children, so that you will not sin; but if anyone does sin, we have someone who pleads with the Father on our behalf—Jesus Christ, the righteous one. 2 And Christ himself is the means by which our sins are forgiven, and not our sins only, but also the sins of everyone.

There's not much to say about this scripture...

Not only has Christ paid the price for our sins, if we sin again he will put in a good word with The Father on our behalf so that he gives us mercy and grace

This is certainly good news for all us sinners!

So, basically, with Jesus we have a friend in high places

And note the use of the word "everyone" - any human being can come to Christ and have their sins forgiven, regardless of race, language, or culture - his mission is universal
