Our Spiritual Garment

After Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit, they knew they had sinned, and they were ashamed. They sewed fig leaves together to cover up their shame—an inadequate garment. This clothing represented their works. However, good works cannot cover up our sin.

God took innocent animals, shed their blood, and made coats of skins to clothe Adam and Eve—a type of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through His shed blood, He provides the only adequate covering for sin.

"Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ" (Rom. 13:14), God says. The garment of salvation furnishes our underclothing, and covers up the shame of sin. After this, obedient children put on the Lord Jesus Christ—His character. Such make it their goal to become more Christ like each day.

Jesus is gentle, meek and mild, but not a wimp. He hates sin and loves the sinner.
While on earth, He denounced the Pharisees' hypocrisy, but lovingly talked to Nicodemus, a Pharisee.

As we put on His character, we crowd out the sinful lusts of the flesh. We make no provision to fulfill our worldly appetites.

Once I loved to dance and collect pictures of movie stars. After I accepted Christ, these things became loathsome to me. Now I love to read and study my Bible. I look forward to fellowship with God's people. We enjoy fun together.


Oh, to become more like Jesus! He had a compassion for souls I can never exceed. He loves as none other has ever loved. His love is pure and holy, free from the taint of sin—a far cry from the sexual lust that people call love today.

Prayer: Oh God, may I become more like Jesus. Give me more love and compassion for souls. In Jesus' name. Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
