Garments Of Salvation.

1 Corinthians 15:39-53
Memory Verse:
1 Corinthians 15:53 “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”

One of the beautiful biblical metaphors of salvation is that of garments appropriate for coming unto God’s presence. Such clothing is not something we ourselves can make or purchase; it must be prepared and provided by God.

Adam and Eve tried to dress themselves with fig leaves, but that would not avail. Their Creator, God, first had to slay an innocent animal. From the slain animal, He made coats of skins and clothed them (Genesis 3:7, 21).

So it is today. If we try to come to God all dressed up in our works of righteousness, we can never make it, for “All our righteousness, are as filthy rags” in the presence of the Holy God (Isaiah 64:6). He must provide the right or appropriate clothing as our text says.

In Jesus’ parable of the wedding feast for the king’s son (Matt.22:1-14) there was one man who wanted to participate in the feast, but who tried to come in his own attire, different from the wedding garment provided by the king for his guests. When the King asked, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ he was speechless (Matthew 22:12). Therefore, he was bound hands and feet and thrown “into outer darkness” (V. 13).

One day, when “the marriage of the lamb is come”, His bride must be “arrayed in fine linen, clean and white for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints (Revelation 19:7, 8). But this righteousness of the Saints (the redeemed of all the ages) will live with Christ forever. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works” (Ephesians 2:10). Therefore, you are advised to “put on thy beautiful garments” (Isaiah 52:1), and be prepared to meet our King in New Jerusalem where there is new and eternal realization of God’s plan for His people.

PRAYER:
Lord, keep me pure within and without every time till the end of my life. Amen.

Thank You Jesus.
