Garment and the Gospel
March 25, 2021 by SLIMJIM
Clothes is a one trillion dollar industry. The Bible is not so-other worldly that clothing doesn’t matter. Acts 9:36 even stated an early member of the church was a maker of garments. And the theme of garments in Scripture points us to God’s grace.
Hebrews 1:11 and James 1:23 makes the observation of how garments is temporary and so is our life. Zechariah 3:3-4 tells us how even a High priest name Joshua who was spoken of highly elsewhere is a wretched sinner where in a vision he wore filthy garments that symbolizes his sinfulness.
If you ever been embarrassed with what you wore and the condition of your clothes you can relate to Joshua! Yet God also says we can be clothed in righteousness and have a garment without shame in Revelation 3:5 and 3:18. This is from God but it is costly. Costly not to you but Jesus the Savior. He died on the Cross. While being crucified His clothes and last garment was taken from him according to Luke 23:34. He died naked and humiliated, mocked and shamed. He bore our shame fully and died for the sins of those who would trust in Him.
Trust in Him. This is the message of the Bible. This is the message I want to preach.
