“For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”

Galatians 3:27

I often wish I could dress myself. I can’t pull on a sweater, button a jacket, or hike up a pair of slacks.

This frustrating predicament has driven me at times to God for help. And isn’t it like the Lord to give not only grace, but insight.

I was reading today’s verse and decided to hunt down other references to clothes.

Isaiah 61:10 says,

“I delight greatly in the Lord…for he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.”

There’s a similar reference in Revelation 19:8. Even back at the Garden of Eden, it was God who provided skins to clothe Adam and Eve after the Fall.

Why does the Bible say that God clothes us when it speaks of our righteousness? Then it hit me.

Garments of salvation and robes of righteousness are things we cannot provide for ourselves. God provides the salvation and the righteousness.

Yes, we can clothe ourselves with Christ as it says in today’s reading, but it’s his righteousness, not ours.

Righteousness is something that God does to us and for us. In fact, when we try to impress God by our own acts of righteousness, the Bible doesn’t call them clothes, but “filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6).

Can you imagine putting on a garment which you sewed out of smelly, soiled rags? I now have a whole new perspective on my “robe of righteousness” whenever dress Up!

The Lord Jesus Christ is our garment of praise, our robe of righteousness, our garment of salvation.

Put him on today and delight in all that he sacrificed to clothe you in something so precious, so priceless… his righteousness.

Lord God, I want to head into this day clothed in your righteousness, not righteous acts performed through my fleshly effort. I put you on today.

Help me to put off sin and self-centeredness and anything that detracts from your glory. You are my robe of salvation, and I couldn’t be dressed in a finer garment!
