I don’t care much for clothes. Although necessary, they confuse me. Yesterday wife Linda asked me to return a pair of jeans I recently purchased. She respectfully stated: “Trust me , they make you look dorky … when it comes to clothes … I know whats best for you.”
Now I understand that clothing has no real eternal value (and so does my wife) … however, I have learned after 16 years of marriage that she certainly has a handle on fashion. After all, who wants to look dorky ?
GOD also knows whats best for me and HE has provided a way to clothe me in HIS righteousness. HE has presented me with the opportunity to be washed whiter than snow.
This week-end we celebrate the only reason JESUS came to rescue us from our sin.
When we believe and receive HIM … HE gives us new clothes … and He knows whats best for us.
Paul made this point clear in Romans 13:14 …
” … clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.”
