Advocacy takes many forms in our society. There are health care advocates...consumer advocates...advocates for political causes and so on. But the greatest advocate of all – as we see throughout the scriptures – is God.
Jesus promised His disciples that the Holy Spirit would come and dwell within them to guide and help them in doing good as He taught. That same spirit of God dwells within each of us. And so we are called to be advocates...to speak and stand for others in need....to show hospitality to strangers...to make peace among our neighbors...to work for justice for everyone.
God is our advocate, like a parent who loves and cares for their child. It is our responsibility then to be advocates for God, becoming activists in love for one another.
What kind of advocate will you be?
