|778||OUR ATONING JUDGE||Romans 14 and 1 John 2, NIV|
Why do you judge your brother?|
Or why do you look down on your brother?
For we will all stand before God's
It is written:
"'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,
'Every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will confess to God.'"
So then, each of us will give an
account of himself to God.
My dear children, I write this to you
so that you will not sin.
But if anybody does sin,
we have one who speaks to the Father
in our defense—Jesus Christ,
the Righteous One.
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,
and not only for ours but also for
the sins of the whole world.
