“Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And to him He said, See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.” Zechariah 3:4
What a picture of us, the best we can do is stand before the LORD in our filthy rags of life! What does the LORD do, He cleans us up and puts a robe of righteousness on us!
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10
To me when I read these verses, my desire is to fall down and worship the King! We all know how greedy, unloving and self centered we can be, and yet the LORD still loves us and will cloth us in His righteousness!
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
Today let us rejoice and be glad that the LORD has removed all our filthy rags from us! Have a blessed day in the LORD!
