And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. – Zechariah 3:4 KJV
Sometimes we are blind to our own dirty clothes. For example, I ask my toddler if he wants to take a bath. Then he says, “I’m not dirty.”
As a perfectionist, I am always trying to get things right, but it is God who can make things perfect, not us. He loves us so much that even though we make mistakes over and over, He forgives us.
Nothing we can do on our own will allow us to escape death, but God offers us eternal life. Amen.
