I have a sister who attended a prestigious high school in Jamaica . Her uniform was all white with a royal blue tie . I always admired how the girls at that school would sit on the ground but their uniforms managed to be immaculately white . These were students who were cognizant of what it takes to be clad in white .
“Let your clothes always be white [with purity], and do not let the oil [of gladness] be lacking on your head.”
Ecclesiastes 9:8 AMP
Sin stains our garments . It is like that thick gravy that accompanies your favourite piece of chicken . If left unattended in your clothes , it is unsightly . We cannot make ourselves pure , but Jesus Christ came for this reason : to remove our sins . Your dependence on Jesus Christ is the secret to keeping your clothes white with purity . Though our sins are like scarlet , they can be made as white as snow . That is the power of the blood of Jesus .
“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD. “ Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be like wool.”
Isaiah 1:18 AMP
This was my main reason for backsliding initially. I thought that my sins could be fixed by myself and so I was on a futile journey of perfection and neglected the power of God. It only let to disappointment and self condemnation . When I understood the role of Jesus Christ in my life , that was when the miracle happened!
“He who overcomes [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God] will accordingly be dressed in white clothing; and I will never blot out his name from the Book of Life, and I will confess and openly acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels [saying that he is one of Mine].”
Revelation 3:5 AMP
Those dressed in white are not only the pure but they are people who have overcome the world and are righteous . You overcome not by what you can do for yourself to remove the stains of sin, but rather your belief in Jesus Christ. The white garment guarantees that your name is in the book of life and that you belong to Jesus !
Be blessed !
