1 John 1:10-2:2, Christ, Our Advocate

Chapter 15 of the Baptist Confession of Faith focuses our attention on the theme, “Repentance unto Life and Salvation.” We who were spiritually dead received spiritual life through repentant faith in Christ. That is the beginning of the Christian life. But Christians still struggle against the vestiges of the old nature. Christ, our Advocate, graciously represents us before the Father. Through His work, we confess our sin and persevere through this struggle.
