What's Under Your Robe?

Given March 31, 2006
(Click on the title above for audio version.)
I was listening to a series of messages on the love of the Father and the speaker made a reference to wearing a robe that made me think. When we get saved, there is an exchange made between us and Jesus. (Actually, the exchange was made at the cross.) Jesus gives us His coat of righteousness and takes our coat of sin. Read about that revelation here from my post on January 6, 2006.

I think, sometimes, we put on the "robe of righteousness" but we're still dirty underneath. "Then the Lord said to him, "Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. Luke 11:39". Just like these Pharisees, we look pretty good on the outside; for the people at church or the office or in public. But our family, and some close friends maybe, have seen under that robe and know what's lurking there. And, there may be some "dirt" under there that even our family doesn't know about. But we know. And God knows.......

But the good thing about it is that we can go to the Father, admit we're dirty, and ask Him to clean us up. We can offer Him our empty, dirty cup and He'll clean it out and refill it. Do it now.
