“It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:8).
We are saved by grace through faith. But that does not mean that we sit back and do nothing. If we are on the narrow way of Christ, then we will try to do those things which are pleasing to the Father. If we are His disciples, having been baptized, we will learn to obey all that the Lord has commanded. We do not earn salvation by such acts, but willingly reflect by our deeds what the Lord has done, is doing, and the hope of what He will do by the lives we live.
Lord, I see so many around me who seem to do nothing. But what do I know? It does not matter what those around me do, it matters what I do. I say I believe, but I often act as though I do not believe. You have come to make me become like You, a child of God. Lord, I know there is much work in me that must be done. Help me, Lord, to live into the life You have given me by Your grace.
Lord Jesus, Author and Finisher of my faith. You know all that needs to be done. May I live my life so that I too may wear the garments of fine linen. May what I do for the glory of God be evident to others. May the works I do, which I know are not meritorious, be fitting with all that You desire from me. Lead me this day as I walk with You. Guide me in the walk of faith You have placed before me. Amen.
