2 Corinthians 5:21 “For our sake HE made HIM to be sin WHO knew no sin, so that in HIM we might become the righteousness of GOD!” Hallelujah!
Generous LORD, our Gracious Redeemer, we bow down our hearts, drawing nigh to THY throne.
In YOUR presence is Joy which o’erwhelms us right now and with thoughts of thanksgiving, we kneel on our own!
For no force is required to bend us before THEE; YOU’ve paid our sin’s debt and have built us a home.
So no matter Life’s structures which now house our being, Tis Heaven we long for and Heaven alone!
Lift our heads then at present to “Stay the Course” singing till, instantly changed, we are clothed in YOUR robes!
As HIServant, like you, already perfectly fitted for that long-expected day before HIS throne,
Devotional: Zechariah 3:3-4 “Now Joshua was dressed in filthy garments as he stood before the angel.
So the angel said to those standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes!”
Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have removed your iniquity, and I will clothe you with splendid robes.”
Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my GOD; for HE has clothed me with the 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.”
Thankfully, HIS sacrifice spares us from worrying about Isaiah 64:6.
We read, “All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags.”
But GOD! As HE did for Joshua, so HE gives us HIS Robes of Righteous, where we are perfected, transformed and given the joys of eternal life with HIM!
Amen and amen!
