Text of the Day







He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white

 raiment;and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels—Rev. 3:5.


The faithful overcomers watch and keep their garments unspotted from the world.... ‘They have not defiled their garments,” they have “kept their garments unspotted from the world.” They have not been willing to permit sin to contaminate them and to separate them from the Lord, but have quickly applied for and obtained the precious blood to remove every stain. They are so heartily opposed to sin and so earnest about the keeping of this garment unspotted that the Adversary gets no hold upon them ”the wicked one catcheth them not.” All this indicates a full submission of their wills to the will of Christ—they are “dead with him,” and hence could not willingly practice sin.
