July 24 Perfect Purity
The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. (Revelation 3:5 ESV)
Warrior of the cross, fight on! Never rest till your victory is complete, for your eternal reward will prove worthy of a life of warfare.
See, here is perfect purity for you! A few in Sardis kept their garments undefiled, and their recompense is to be spotless. Perfect holiness is the prize of our high calling; let us not miss it.
See, here is joy! You shall wear holiday robes, such as men put on at wedding feasts; you shall be clothed with gladness and be made bright with rejoicing. Painful struggles shall end in peace of conscience and joy in the Lord.
See, here is victory! You shall have your triumph. Palm, and crown, and white robe shall be your garment; you shall be treated as a conqueror and owned as such by the Lord Himself.
See, here is priestly array! You shall stand before the Lord in such garment as the sons of Aaron wore; you shall offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving and draw near unto the Lord with the incense of praise.
Who would not fight for a Lord who gives such large honors to the very least of His faithful servants? Who would not be clothed in a fool's coat for Christ's sake, seeing He will robe us with glory?
