Day-by-Day – Day 82 – Whose Righteousness?


~Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

It is God who covers us in righteousness. It cannot be our own works because the Word says that our own righteousness is like a filthy rag to God.

~Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Our sins blow us around like a leaf in the wind. There is no holding us down – there is no stabilizing us. The only stable thing we can possibly have is salvation. At the moment of being born again, we put on the righteousness of Christ and our sins are no longer being judged by the Father for the Father only sees His Son’s precious blood on that altar of sacrifice.

~1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

There is only One who can forgive our sins, clothe us in righteousness and pay the price for our deserved punishment! That is the Christ, our Saviour! Why do you think He is called the Saviour? What would He save us from if it weren’t from sin and eternal punishment? Praise God that He saved me from myself because I would have only led my soul to destruction.

“Some men are foolishly counting on getting to Heaven simply because they have never been in jail.”

~ B. F. McLendon

    PRAISE GOD FOR HIS MERCY AND GRACE!!!

    Psalm 107:1-2
    O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.
