And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. (Luke 2:12ESV)
But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened. (Luke 24:12 ESV)
When I think that God promises me that I am clothed in the righteousness of Christ, it seems too extravagant.
When I think that Jesus clothed himself in flesh, I marvel at His humility.
At His birth, He was swaddled in cloths. He wore the garb of a rabbi. He used a towel to wash dirty feet. Soldiers gambled for His last garment. He was wrapped in burial cloths, which were found in the empty tomb laid with care.
When I think that God clothed me with His love, it seems too lavish .
What do you think of the clothing of God?
