Put on the Royal Robe
Put on the Royal Robe
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience (the Royal Robe). Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14
What does the new nature in Christ look like?
Who are you? Do you still get your identity from your old nature? Are you still trying to fix the old nature?
Maybe you have not really put on the Royal Robe of the new nature. You keep living in the regret of the last sin. Instead of trying to fix the sin nature, allow the new nature to live. The sin nature is dead. Stop trying to resuscitate the dead dog of sin in your life. You were born into sin but because of Christ Jesus you have a new nature.
Put on the new Royal Robe as a child of God. Put on the Royal Robe of righteousness. Put on the Royal Robe which allows you to sit on the throne next to Jesus Christ. Put on the Royal Robe as a dearly loved child of the King of Kings. Put on the Royal Robe as the heir of God and joint heir with Jesus Christ.
Your Royal Robe has been fitted from the beginning of time. It fits you perfectly. It has been custom-tailored by the master tailor HIMSELF. God loves you with an everlasting love. HE wants you to wear the Royal Robe which HE made and designed for you. Your sins have been forgiven as far as the east is from the west. You do not deserve to wear the Royal Robe based upon anything you have done. It is what Christ Jesus did for you on the cross. Your righteousness on your own is like filthy rags. You are now made Holy and Righteous because of what Jesus Christ did for all mankind. Jesus Christ has forgiven you for all your sin. There is not one sin of which HE has not forgiven you. HIS blood was shed for the forgiveness of sin.
You are now part of the Royal Priesthood. You are now a saint sitting on the throne next to your father in the Kingdom of God. You are HIS son or daughter. HE calls you HIS friend because you love your neighbor. You have total confidence and freedom to approach God.
