My Message to My Fellow Victims’ Advocates
Posted on Friday, November 11th, 2011 at 12:54 pm
Two thousand years ago a great advocate died to make his case. He could be called the greatest trial lawyer of all time, for his life was a great trial indeed. He litigated the merits of good versus evil, and offered his sacrifice as the ultimate advocacy on behalf of his clients. His resurrection was the ultimate proof of the validity of his claim.
His case was simple. God loves you, and whosoever shall believe in him will never die. He made his argument although he labored under the ultimate burden of proof, “No greater love has one man for another than to lay down his life for him.” His crucifixion and resurrection was a three day summation, the greatest closing argument of all time.
You carry on his work today. You sacrifice your labor, your sweat, and many times your tears, to prove your case and to make the lives of your clients better. We have a great example to follow. You fight the good fight. Your sacrifices are worth it. You make a difference.
