Jesus speaks to God the Father on our behalf

Some people may think that sin is a normal part of the Christian life. They agree that we will continue to sin. They may even think that it does not matter. God will forgive us when we sin. But sin does matter. Christians ought not to continue to sin. They should not sin. Sin is an enemy that will move us from the light. (That is, it will move us away from everything that is good, holy, and right.) Sin will get between God and us. It spoils the joy that Christians should share.

John writes as a father. He writes to his children whom he loves. He tells them that they should not sin. He wrote the letter to help them not to sin.

We should not sin but we are human and weak. If we sin, we have to confess it to God. We must decide that we will not do that sin again. If possible we should put right what we have done wrong. And we must ask the Lord to forgive us our sin.

If anyone does sin, God has the remedy for it. Someone is ready to help us. He comes to our rescue. This person is able to speak to God the Father. He is the agent for the person who sinned. Jesus Christ is this person. He has never sinned. He has always done what was right. He is the perfect man and he is God the Son. He understands us and he is God. So, he can speak with God the Father. He can ask God to forgive our sins.

1. THE GIFT OF WISDOM
There are three types of wisdom:
* The wisdom of God (I Corinthians 2:6-7)
* The wisdom of the world (I Corinthians 2:6)
* The wisdom of man (Ecclesiastes 1:16-18)
The gift of the word of wisdom is the application of knowledge that God gives you ( I Corinthians 2:6-7). This type of wisdom is a gift which cannot be gained through study or experience and should by no means try to replace them. The gift of the word of wisdom is seeing life from God's perspective. As a Christian exercises this gift, he begins to develop a fear of the Lord. This is the "beginning of wisdom" according to Proverbs 1:7.

God's Will

Jesus said that His true relations are those who know and do the Father’s will: “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:35. In the parable of the two sons, Jesus rebukes the chief priests and elders for failing to do the will of the Father; specifically, they “did not repent and believe” (Matthew 21:32). At its most basic, the will of God is to repent of our sin and trust in Christ. If we have not taken that first step, then we have not yet accepted God’s will.

Once we receive Christ by faith, we are made God’s children (John 1:12), and He desires to lead us in His way (Psalm 143:10). God is not trying to hide His will from us; He wants to reveal it. In fact, He has already given us many, many directions in His Word. We are to “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:1). We are to do good works (1 Peter 2:15). And “it is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality” (1 Thessa…
