1 John 2:1 NASB "My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;"It had been a while since I did it and this time hurt just as much, you think I would have learned it by now! Today's verse shares about sinning and how if we do sin, we have an Advocate, Jesus Christ who took our sin upon Himself at the Cross. Now, what I did wasn't a sin but I allowed myself to focus on the wrong thing and once again shot my finger with my nail gun! Ouch! I had done it in the past and you would have thought that the pain of the previous time would have kept me from ever doing it again but I lost focus and allowed it to happen. Life will bring challenges, things and times from our past that have led us to sin, but we don't have to repeat the same sins over and over. We can, through Jesus Christ, not live in the pain of past sins. When we repent, we are made new! So, let's keep our focus on Him so we don't hurt ourselves again! peace, tom
