What keeps the martyr humble!!!

Breaking News!!! Auction results are out!!! The gorgeous navy blue suit our Honorable Prime Minister wore to receive US President Barack Obama went under hammer on 20th Febraury 2015. With feisty bidding, diamond baron Lalji Patel owner of a Diamond Manufacturing Firm-Dharmanandan Diamonds in Surat- stamped his ownership on the same which has the PM’s full name- Narendra Damodardas Modi- embroidered into the pinstripes. After this high-profile auction Mr Patel’s prized possession was brought in a procession to Dharmanandan Diamonds factory at Gotalawadi in Katargam, Surat.

While it is indeed in order for the entire Dharmanandan Fraternity to be justifiably proud about having this prestigious dress in its possession, let’s turn our spotlight now on a totally different type of a garment albeit of immeasurable value which enhances not only the “Feel Good factor” of its wearer exponentially but guarantees eventually the concerned individual the priceless Eternal life. Let the Prophetic Scripture which speaks about the Song of a forgiven sinner of the Church age take over…

“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has …arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness…” –Isaiah 61:10.

For better understanding of the subject –Robe of Righteousness- here comes this message “tailored” by Yours Truly all for the Master’s Glory using the following sub-headings…

GRACE…

What is this robe of righteousness if it is not the very presence of God’s own Holy Spirit. When it is “with us”, we get “Righteousness” meaning a “Right standing” with God. Ah…Lalji Patel, while posing for his photographs with the Modi mannequin incidentally said, “Now, I could touch and feel the fabric and experience the presence of PM Modi standing by my side."

While it cost a hefty sum for Mr Patel to become proud possessor of PM’s pulchritudinous apparel, it is purely out of Almighty’s grace that “Robe of Righteousness” is given to an individual absolutely free of cost who comes seeking the right relationship with the Divine Redeemer. How? Read on…

GRIMY…

First things first. Being related to our original sinning parents –Adam and Eve- all of us are born with“grimy attire”, so to speak, the one which is totally unacceptable to the Holy God. Whilst being alive (Heb 9:27), we need to be “robed with robes” worthy of entering the Divine, Holy presence, otherwise we would not only be left alone in this Cursed World (Gen 3:17/Rom 8:19-22) to fend for ourselves (hmmm…living without God in this big bad World is really a frightening proposition) but also be condemned and cast away permanently from His Holy Presence at death.

A Disclaimer here please…the Sovereign, Almighty Creator does not give His priceless Robes of righteousness to everyone but reserves the right to grant the same to only those who approach Him for them on His terms. And why not? For He has paid a “heavy price” to give it to us in the form it is now!!!
