This picture and message is from an artist who continues to paint pictures of the Savior even though she has rheumatoid arthritis, and every brushstroke is painful.
Jesus hung on the cross, He looked to those who stood at His feet and
said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” – Luke
Though this plea certainly referred to those who were
crucifying Him, it also applied to all of who fall short and sin. An
advocate is one who pleads another’s cause and Christ is truly our
advocate with the Father. The apostle John wrote, “And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” – John 2:1...
When I look at this painting I feel that the Lord truly is our
Advocate. His sacrifices make possible our forgiveness and in His
mercies we find hope. I am grateful for His love and I long to keep His
commandments that I might feel of His love and know Him."
