“So the angel said to the others standing there, “Take off his filthy clothes.” And turning to Jeshua he said,”See, I have taken away your sins,and now I am giving you these fine new clothes.” (Zechariah 1:4, NLT)
“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are as red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18,NLT)
“Christmas this year will be sweeter. God didn’t avoid me when I was in the filthy rags of sin, but He walked along beside me and brought me to salvation. Jesus walks along beside me even when I momentarily avoid Him. May I stay ever close to Him!
Prayer: Father, thank You for saving me. Thank You for taking away my filthy garments and clothing me with righteousness because of Your Son, Jesus. May You draw the unlovely of the world to Yourself through Your servants. Help me to minister to the poor, the needy, and even the homeless this Christmas season. Amen.
