Let us ask God to clothe us with the robe of Christ’s righteousness, that we may be prepared for the coming of the Son of man.
Christ says, “They shall walk with Me in white: for they are worthy.” Through infinite sacrifice made in our behalf, we may have an abundance of grace. God has a whole heaven full for us. All He asks is that by living faith we receive His promises, saying: “I do believe. I do accept the blessings which Thou hast for those who love Thee.”
This is our washing and ironing time,—the time when we are to cleanse our robes of character in the blood of the Lamb. John says, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” I thank Thee, my heavenly Father, I praise Thee, that Thou hast given us Jesus, to take away our sins. Shall we not let Him take them away?
When you are tempted to speak cross words, pray for grace to resist the temptation... Remember that if you speak cross words to fellow church-members, you would speak the same kind of words in heaven, were you permitted to enter there.
He desires you to live in unity with one another, and to love one another. Remember that if you love one another here, you will live with the redeemed through the ceaseless ages of eternity. Oh, think of these things!
Come to the Saviour, and ask for forgiveness of sin. He will cleanse you and purify you; for He is a loving, compassionate Saviour. He says, “Let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me, and he shall make peace with Me.” He will accept you. He will lift you up.
My heavenly Father, we come to Thee at this time as children dependent upon Thee. We are weakness itself. In us there is no strength, no comeliness. But we come to Thee as Thy little children.
O my Father, for Christ’s sake wilt Thou pardon our transgressions and our sins. Wilt Thou give us clear spiritual eyesight, that we may discern what we should be, and what we must be.
My Saviour, we open the door of the heart, and we say, Come in and take full possession.
Take us just as we are. Wash us in Thy blood, and put upon us the robe of Thy righteousness... Take us all into Thy compassionate arms, and speak pardon to us today. Be with us and help us, and Thy name shall have all the glory. Amen.
