"A White Wedding Gown Hanging" 


Whose Clothes Are You Wearing?
by Adrian Rogers, Love Worth Finding Ministries

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; 
for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, 
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
 and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."

- Isaiah 61:10

Some people reading this will be absolutely speechless when they stand before the King of Heaven. They are church members, but they’re not saved. Instead, they’re dressed in the rags of self-righteousness rather than the wedding garment of His righteousness. Can you say this? “He hath clothed me with the garment of salvation. He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness.”

In 1834 Edward Mote wrote this timeless hymn, “When He shall come with trumpet sound, Oh may I then in Him be found. Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne.”

It would be tragic indeed for those who acted in every conceivable religious way to think they can come to the wedding without being clothed by the righteousness of Christ. I’m not trying to get you to doubt your salvation, but I want to ask you, are you saved? How do you know?

"Garden Perspectives! Summer's Black-eyed Susans!"

Although our winter weather has not been that bad, so far, this year, I am sharing an image of beautiful yellow Black-eyed Susans from my garden last summer. This is my way of encouraging those who look forward to the warmer weather and want the winter weather out of here.  One of them would be me! 

"Summer's Black-eyed Susans!" is part of my Garden Perspectives series. To view my other work, please visit Allen Pearson Photography - Garden Perspectives
