Have you ever had the privilege of staying at one of those hotels with the most comfy white robes you’ve ever felt? After a shower, you open the closet and there it is, this biggest, fluffiest, whitest, softest robe ever. As you put it on, it just envelopes your body in luxury.
When Jesus returns to the earth to gather up His followers in the last days, He promises more than a comfy white hotel robe. He tells us that we’ll get a permanent new wardrobe of a robe even more comfy than those hotel room robes. This robe will be the most brilliant white that we’ve ever seen, even more white than Shout with bleach can make them. We’ll get a robe just like Jesus.’

Our white robe will be the symbolism of our holiness which will be given to us through the blood of the Lamb, Jesus.
- “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

Thank you, Lord, for your promise of a new, imperishable wardrobe picked out especially by You. We look forward to the day when we don’t have to worry about trends and fashions and rips and tears. Your garments will stand the test of time by never going out of style and never wearing out. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
