And You Thought You were Dressed to the Nines

Dressed in Rags

Pix from Dr Guido pageBIBLE MEDITATION:
“…We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags …” Isaiah 64:6

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
What a beautiful, wonderful life Adam and Eve lived in the Garden. But when they disobeyed the Lord, immediately they were stricken with guilt. They tried to cover their guilt by making suits of fig leaves. But when God came walking through the Garden, they hid themselves from His presence. What had looked good to them could not stand under the gaze of a holy God. He demanded something else, so He shed innocent blood to make them coats of skin—which is the picture of the covering of righteousness that we receive in the Lord Jesus Christ who died for us.

So many of us have tried to dress ourselves in the rags of our self righteousness. We need the blood of Jesus.

ACTION POINT:
Examine your heart. What fruitless efforts are you making to sew a fig leaf covering for yourself? What is the only thing that will wash away sin and bring you purity, cleansing and righteousness? Apply that to your heart today.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
