A naked sinner can be clothed, but a sinner covered with his own righteousness must be stripped.
This is always true.
We must be stripped of all that has to do with self or we cannot be clothed with that which pertains to God.
We are called to live by faith; we can see nothing with the eye of sense.
The Lord Jesus has gone up on high, and we are told to wait patiently for His appearing.
God’s Word carried home to the heart in the power of the Holy Spirit is the basis of confidence in all things: temporal and spiritual, present and future.
He tells us of Christ’s completed sacrifice.
We by grace believe and commit our souls to the efficacy thereof, and we know we shall never be disappointed.
