The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you.” (Zechariah 3:4)
God desires to clean his children from the dirt of a sinful world, in which we now live. The fact is that in Christ the true hope of all of us is found. People have sought to find hope in many things. Some have trusted in their own power or strength, some in the efforts of leaders, some in friends, and some in ritualistic activities. However, all human effort leaves still in the same dirty clothes that we started in. We have not really been cleaned.
Christ died on the cross so that our sins could be forever washed away. He continues to clean us and offer us the pure clothes of His way of life. He offers us a new way to live life in this world, and prepares us for life in eternity.
We in our own effort cannot do anything to save ourselves, it is only in God’s love and work that we can be saved, cleaned, and made new. Let your trust be found in Christ alone.
– Keep on your journey with Jesus
