Monday Manna - Cloaked

I am hosting Monday Manna today, where we meet to together to study a portion of God's Word. You may link to your blog with thoughts on this verse (with the Linky at the bottom of this page), or you may add a comment.

Buried with Him in baptism,
wherein also ye are risen with Him
through the faith of the operation of God,
who hath raised Him from the dead.
(Colossians 2:12)

I don't deserve to be let into Heaven.
All that I am or try to be is nothing but filth.

When gave my life to God,
Jesus did a wondrous thing.
He exchanged my sin for His righteousness.

God does not see me anymore.
I have been baptized
(Greek-baptízein, immersed)
into the life of His Son.

Christ is in me, and I am in Him.

When Jesus died,
my old self died with all its sin.

When He rose,
I became a new creation.

Because Jesus lives, I have eternal life!

I boldly come before the throne of God
on the merit of His Son.
He paid the price of my sin.

I am cloaked in the blood of the Lamb.

"When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne."

("The Solid Rock" by Edward Mote)

Here is a short allegory I wrote about being accepted because we are "dressed in His righteousness. (The Undeserved Shirt)
