Clothed in Righteousness

Clothed in Righteousness

I now have a whole new perspective on my “robe of righteousness” whenever someone dresses me! The Lord Jesus Christ is our garment of praise, our robe of righteousness, our garment of salvation. Put him on today and delight in all that he sacrificed to clothe you in something so precious, so priceless… his righteousness.   

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

Galatians 3:27 

I often wish I could dress myself. I can’t pull on a sweater, button a jacket, or hike up a pair of slacks. This frustrating predicament has driven me at times to God for help. And isn’t it like the Lord to give not only grace, but insight. I was reading today’s verse and decided to hunt down other references to clothes.  

Isaiah 61:10 says,

I delight greatly in the Lord…for he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.

There’s a similar reference in Revelation 19:8. Even back at the Garden of Eden, it was God who provided skins to clothe Adam and Eve after the Fall.
