Whose Clothes Are You Wearing?
“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.”Isaiah 61:10
There are some who may be reading this who are going to be absolutely speechless when they stand before the King of Heaven. They are church members, but they’re not saved. Instead, they’re dressed in the rags of self-righteousness rather than the wedding garment of His righteousness.
In 1834 hymn writer Edward Mote wrote this timeless pledge, “When He shall come with trumpet sound, Oh may I then in Him be found. Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne.”
It would be tragic indeed for those who acted in every conceivable religious way to think they can come to the wedding without Christ’s righteousness. I’m not trying to get you to doubt your salvation, but I want to ask you, are you saved? How do you know?
