Back in August, my sweet girl and I "ran away" for a couple of days to shop, eat out, and "chill" before the wedding. We stayed in this great (but very reasonably priced) hotel. They had some very nice amenities including white terry robes. Oh, my goodness! We showered, wrapped ourselves in them, snuggled up in the bed with our snacks and diet cokes and watched "Say Yes To The Dress"!!! Now that is luxury! ha! ha! They were soft and comfortable....and we didn't have to purchase them. They came with the price of the room.... provided for our use.
Reminds me of of God's provision. He has wrapped me in the righteousness of Christ with a robe that identifies me as His child. It gives me access to Him so that I can snuggle up in His lap and enjoy the comfort of His love and mercy. His robe was also bought with a price by Jesus....and then provided for me as a gift of His grace!
".... and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ......the righteousness that comes from God..." Phil 3:9
