Dressed In Fine Clothing

Zachariah 3:3-4 (NET) Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood there before the angel. The angel spoke up to those standing all around, “Remove his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “I have freely forgiven your iniquity and will dress you in fine clothing”

Do you know that a lot of ‘good’ persons will go to hell?

It was in Luke chapter 18 verses 18&19 that a man came running to Jesus and said, “…Good master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus responded saying, “…Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone”

You see, God doesn’t judge the way man does. For man, goodness is relative and comparative. Men tend to consider people who treat them with kindness as good persons and those who do not as bad, which is why even the worst of persons has someone who considers them as good. Again, men tend to judge people’s goodness in comparison with others. For example, a public servant who performs his duty to the fullest but misappropriates funds is considered good especially in comparison to the corrupt official who neither carries out his duty and yet is guilty of gross misappropriation of funds.

God’s valuation of ‘good’ is defined from his nature and character. This is why  man without possessing the nature of God will at best be the best-behaved sinner. Hear how Prophet Isaiah described it, “We are all like one who is unclean, all our so-called righteous acts are like a menstrual rag in your sight. We all wither like a leaf; our sins carry us away like the wind” This is the state of every man without Christ.

In Christ, we are provided with new clothes purchased by his death on the cross, washed in his blood and made clean with his righteousness. When we wear this new garment, we can only boast of His Righteousness and not ours, we now have nothing to boast of in ourselves. This new garment represents the forgiveness of your sins and the impartation of a new nature, God’s nature, to you. That is the fine clothing.

Have you been dressed in this fine clothing? Have you received forgiveness of sin by faith in Christ Jesus? Are you born again?

If no, you can do that now. If you believe in your heart that Jesus is the son of God who died for your sins and by his death has obtained forgiveness of sin for you and with your mouth, you confess him as Lord and savior, you will be saved. Why not do that now.
