July 9


I have removed your iniquity from you,
and I will clothe you with rich robes.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. § We are all like an unclean thing. § I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

As many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. § You have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him. § Not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but … the righteousness which is from God by faith.

Bring out the best robe and put it on him. § The fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. § 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.

Zech. 3:4; Ps. 32:1; Isa. 64:6; Rom. 7:18; Gal. 3:27;
Col. 3:9–10; Phil. 3:9; Luke 15:22; Rev. 19:8; Isa. 61:10


The Day will declare it.

Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.

Why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ … So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. Therefore let us not judge one another anymore.

God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ. § The Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son … [He] has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.

The Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.

1 Cor. 3:13; 4:5; Rom. 14:10, 12–13;
2:16; John 5:22, 27; Jer. 32:18–19
