Our Personal Defender

Last Saturday we made a trip to the theater to see Madea Goes to Jail. I love Tyler Perry's movies, but this was probably my least favorite. Don't misunderstand, I did laugh, a lot. I think it's probably hard to make sequels and have them be as good as the first.

As usual, Madea is in trouble and back in court. Defending her is her sweet nephew lawyer. He goes before the judge for her or should I say he trys. Madea is not very good at being quiet and letting her defense speak for her. She is however very lucky to have a lawyer that cares about her and that she knows she can trust.

Although we are Christians and try to live holy lives we are not exempt from sin. There are many times we mess up. Daily for me. We are so blessed to have a defender who speaks for us to our judge. Not just any defender, but a holy spotless one. The very one who knew no sin and died for ours is our mediator. He loves us and he can always be trusted. He will always do what is best for us.

Thank you Father for sending your only son to die for me; that I may experience your love while here on earth and know that someday I will live with you forever.

....;But if anyone does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense - Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
