In one of my favorite movies there was a special cloak
given to two hobbits that protected them from danger.
Christ’s covering protects us from righteous judgment and deserved punishment.
Our Holy Creator God cannot abide with sin. He CANNOT. He WILL NOT.
Yet He wants to abide with us, His created ones, so in perfect Love and Grace,
He provided (Jehovah-Jireh, our provider!) a covering—a remedy for our sin.
Not a single one of us can provide such a covering for ourselves!
We will ALL stand before the throne of God someday.
We will all answer for what we did and did not do.
Will we stand exposed, naked and alone?
Or will we stand with Christ at our side,
holding His cloak of righteousness around us,
declaring our sin-debt as paid because we belong to Him?
Are you covered?
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me
in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
