Sunday School | 1 John 2:1-14 | Bro. Roger Harden
“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.” -1 John 2:1-2
-Propitiation=Subsitute, but even further, the wrath of God was satisfied AND His favor was bestowed upon us!
-We have to be motivated by the love of God. What’s your motivation? Are you trying to impress the world?
