Provoking thoughts from John Piper

The following was on John Piper's blog today:

Your life hangs on how you relate these two statements:

“If anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous” (1 John 2:1).

“Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you” (John 5:14).

Do you experience the first one weakening the second?
Or do you experience the first one joyfully empowering the second?
Your life hangs on your answer.


  1. Yes, EXACTLY!!!
    exactly what God is teaching me right now!!

    GOOD ONE> thanks for this today

  2. I think I'm going to borrow this for my blog, it's worded so perfectly!
