May 15, 2020 - Advocate!

The reality of our world currently causes us much anxiety. My friend Roy is being treated for bladder cancer. He had a reaction to the chemo that required him to be hospitalized. His wife was distressed that no one was communicating with her, and she knew from talking with Roy that something was not right. The doctor’s response was that when he talked to Roy it seemed to him that he was understanding what was going on. This was a case of an advocate being needed to look out for the patient. I know that this scene is playing out in hospitals across our land, and some of you may have family or friends that have been affected this way. In John 14, Jesus tells us that he has arranged for us to have an advocate with God, someone to look out for our well-being.

As we deal with the anxiety of this time, we can take comfort that Jesus has provided an advocate for us. Our world may have many uncertainties right now. However, in our relationship with God, we can have peace because our advocate, Jesus Christ, is looking out for us. Rather than be troubled, we can have peace.

Take comfort in that peace as we live in this troubled time.

Oh God, thank you for our advocate. Amen.

Always, to God be the glory!
