Apart from Christ, I would stand before God as Raggedy Annemarie, but in God's gracious mercy, He chose me and clothed me with the righteousness of Christ. To Him be all the glory!
"But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away." - Isa 64:6 NKJV
"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, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels." - Isa 61:10 NKJV
