Many times, I feel so guilty and sin conscious. But the Lord is reminding me that indeed, I was brought forth in sin when my first parents Adam and Eve sinned. But He did not leave me in this helpless state, for He knows the weight and burden of sin, and how it keeps us away from Him.
As He slaughtered an animal for Adam and Eve, and made garments to cover their shame… many years later, He gave us Jesus, the perfect sacrifice, and His blood… Oh His precious blood, covered me. Thus, when we approach Him, we are free from shame – for He covered us. He covered me in Jesus Christ Himself, the a robe of righteousness. I can come to Him, I don’t need to hide like Adam and Eve did – for I come with confidence by Jesus’ blood, and His body. Thank you Father!
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water” Hebrews 10:19- 22.
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God, For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness -Isaiah 61:10.
