What I read today
We stand before God with nothing. Our inability to follow God’s command is a lifelong problem. We can’t measure up to his holy standards.
Zechariah 3 talks about the nation standing before the Angel of the Lord dressed in rags. But instead of rejecting the people, the Angel of the Lord orders the nation to be covered in new clothes. And then he promises in one day to wipe away all the sin and guilt of the people.
The day the Branch of God comes to earth. The day that Jesus came to the planet and lived his life for each one of us. That’s the day that we were given grace and mercy to live with Jesus in spite of our being totally unworthy.
So today stand in awe and celebrate the fact that Jesus Christ has given you new clothes to wear in heaven. Clothes that won’t wear out ever!
