*'Oh, delightful thought! that I, who was going on in sin, should be plucked as a brand out of the burning. Oh, how will they lie on a death-bed who have nothing but their own works to fly to? with only this to depend upon, I should be the most miserable of all creatures; but the long white robe of my Redeemer's righteousness is all my desire. They are truly blessed, they alone are happy, who are able to exult in the garment of celestial glory which never waxeth old-in the illustrious robe of a Savior's consummate righteousness, which is incorruptible and immortal. This is a robe which hides every sin, of thought, word, or deed, that I have committed. Oh, how unspeakably happy are they who are justified by this all-perfect righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ, and who therein can constantly triumph and glory.' John Willison
*Two Examples of Men Proclaiming the Honor of Another 1. Reluctantly: Esther 6:7-11 ‘And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour, Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head: And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour. Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken. Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 2. Zealously: Mark 1:6-8 ‘And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
