Rich Garments for Filthy Clothes

Zechariah 1-3; Luke 11

“…Take off his filthy clothes… See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you…If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts…” Zechariah 3:3, 4, 6

God’s call to leaders is to walk in purity and obedience, so that they can fulfill God’s call to serve others with moral authority. Leadership is sometimes seen as a popularity contest or a political maneuver. However, Gods’ leaders recognize that their authority to lead comes from God and is affirmed by the Church. Authority begins on the inside of our life as we submit to God’s will and ways. With greater authority comes the requirement for greater submission and obedience. God’s blessing rests upon those who answer his call and walk with God. There is no greater calling than to walk with God and serve others in his name.

“Father, I humble myself before you. Your will and your ways are my desire. Cleanse me of my sin and remove my sin-stained garments; clothe me with your robes of righteousness, for your glory.”
