DAILY?READINGS: Nehemiah 8:1-18; Zechariah 4:1-14; Revelation 13:1-18

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Revelation 19:8

Time is short. Let every saint of God prepare themselves for the crowning day. Like a bride spends the morning of her wedding beautifying herself and adorning herself in a spotless dress, so too, let us spend this brief period of time we call “life” arraying ourselves with purity and holiness for the gaze of our coming bridegroom—our Prince, the Lord Jesus Christ. We may only have a few days, weeks, months left before we hear “Go ye out to meet him!” (Matt. 25:6). —Shane Johnson

O spread His fame abroad;
Loud hallelujahs sing;
He clothes thee in a beauteous dress;
His own blest robe of righteousness. —Author Unknown
