"A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client".
We would certainly be foolish to represent ourselves before a holy God when we can have Jesus to be our great and perfect representative!
That is the message of what really happened in Bethlehem. God the Son came to earth and took on human flesh so that He might be our representative. He lived a perfect life so that His righteousness might be credited to us. He suffered and died as He took the punishment for our sin upon Himself. Even now, He represents before the Heavenly Father those who have repented and trusted Him.
That is the message we are seeking to share with the elected officials, legislators, lobbyists, and staff as we present the last Bible study of 2013 at the West Virginia capitol.
- Please pray as we share our study, What Really Happened in Bethlehem at the capitol on Tuesday, December 10.
- Pray as the study notes are distributed throughout the statehouse.
- Pray that we as believers might find greater joy and assurance in contemplating all that Christ has done for us.
- Pray that God might work in hearts of leaders to repent and trust Christ as their great representative.
Thank you once again for your prayer and support of our ministry.
State Director, West Virginia
