The apostle John called Jesus “The Advocate.” This contrasts sharply with the devil who is called “the Accuser.” An accuser speaks against you; an advocate speaks up on your behalf.
God is not looking for ways to condemn us, He’s looking for ways to lead us to do what is right so that we won’t deserve condemnation.
When we confess our sins, God forgives us and cleanses us so that we might do better.
Never think that God is against you. He is the one who is for you. In fact, He is more for you than you are for yourself.
Have as your ambition to be pleasing to Him. He simply wants you to love Him and other people.
