My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1
Did you sin today? Oh, my!
But God has provided for that.
He sent his only Son, Jesus. Why?
To pay for the ugly word or lie!
Someone had to pay for our sin.
It’s a story that makes me sad.
But God was sure when we found out,
The ending would make us all glad.
Jesus died so we could say, “No!”
To all that Satan sends us.
He tries to trick us into sin
But the answer is deep within us!
Sin does not rule over God’s child.
We don’t have to let it take hold
Of our heart, our mind, our actions—
Or of our very soul!
For God gave us His Spirit
To live and grow within!
To learn His Word–the Scriptures
That Jesus spoke to win!
“Get behind me, Satan!”
Is what our Master said.
“For it is written,” He spoke it.
Right to Satan, he said!
We will listen to Jesus.
He has told us how,
To stop that old snake, Satan!
And only to Lord Jesus bow!
Fun Fact: God knew Satan’s plan and He sent Jesus to take care of it.
