The promise that one day Believers in Jesus Christ will enter through Heavens gates and live with God forever is one of the greatest Christian joys. The bible calls this our “Blessed Hope.” (Titus 2:13) We praise the Lord and worship Him, as we wait to meet Jesus in the clouds when He appears.
The bible says those who have been purified by the blood of Jesus Christ will one day have the right to eat the fruit from the tree of life. Hallelujah! A “clean heart” and a “white robe” is talking about the same thing in the bible, PURITY. It is a blessing to have a washed robe, a purified heart; because it guarantees that we will live with God in eternal paradise. Aren’t you excited?
The idea of having your robes washed clean is a metaphor that represents a purified life. This is a life that has been freed from all uncleanliness and sin. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world. We are told that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness. Only the blood of Jesus can wash away your sins, purifying your sinful hearts and making you clean before God. When we confess our sins, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). This is how we wash our robes. That is what allows us to walk in the light with Jesus and to have fellowship with other Believers. While we are still here waiting on Christ to return, we are connected with Him in our Spirit and in communion with him and other Christians in His Church. Why? Because our sins have been forgiven and our robes have been made white by the blood of Jesus. Praise His Holy Name.
Question: How often do you take your heart to the cleaners? In what ways could you do better with confession and repentance? What excites you the most about entering through Heaven’s gates? What sins do you need to confess to God? Have you repented of your sins and asked Jesus to forgive you?
Prayer: Lord I confess my sins to you and ask you to forgive me. I surrender to Your will for my life and ask You to wash me and make me whiter than snow through your shed blood on the cross. Amen.
