Do You Need a Lawyer?

[133 words]

I see billboards advertising lawyers. Do you need an attorney? Someone to plead your case. The psalmist said he did. “Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation” (Psalm 43:1). Because of sin, Satan, and unjust men we need an attorney to defend us today before a holy God. That divine lawyer is Jesus. “And if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1). Not only is His service free, He takes our crimes and is willing to bear them Himself. When He makes our case before the Judge of all the earth, the Judge always hears and honors the will of our Attorney (John 11:42). Hallelujah, I’m free! You need a lawyer? I know a good One!
