Putting on Holiness

Job 42:5-6 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.”

Job had a personal encounter with God. In that encounter he saw just how holy God is. He also saw how very sinful he was in spite of his living what appears to be a moral and trustworthy life. We don’t realize our own sin until we realize the holiness of God. It takes darkness to appreciate light. It takes seeing God’s holiness to see our own sin. We tend to think of ourselves as good, caring people but in comparison to God’s holiness we are filthy rags, unfit for heaven. It is only because of the gift of God through His Word, Jesus, Who offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sin that we can clothe ourselves with the holiness of Jesus. As God looks at us, unless He sees the holiness of His Son, we are nothing but filth. Have you clothed yourselves in the holiness of Jesus? What about your family and friends? Show them how to put on the holiness of Jesus.
