Jesus Christ is our advocate with the Father when we sin, but we don’t use Christ’s atoning sacrifice as an excuse to ignore His will.

     1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

     3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.(KJV)

1. Jesus, Thou art mine forever, 
Dearer far than earth to me; 
Neither life nor death shall sever 
Those sweet ties which bind to Thee. 

2. All were drear to me and lonely 
If Thy presence gladdened not; 
While I sing to Thee, Thee only, 
Mine’s an ever blissful lot. 

3. Thou alone art all my Treasure, 
Who hast died that I may live; 
Thou conferrest noblest pleasure, 
Who dost all my sins forgive. 

4. Brightest gems and fairest flowers 
Lose their beauty in Thy frown; 
Joy and peace, like balmy showers, 
In Thy smile come gently down. 

5. Jesus, Thou art mine forever; 
Never suffer me to stray. 
Let me in my weakness never 
Cast my priceless pearl away. 

6. Lamb of God, I do implore Thee, 
Guard, support me, lest I fall. 
Let me evermore adore Thee; 
Be my everlasting All.
