Through Righteousness God has Forgiven our sins, and He has also Prepared for us a Righteousness by which we can ALWAYS Come To Him.
Forgiveness is like taking a bath; Righteousness is like wearing a robe.
Among men we are clothed that we may appear before them.
So too, God Clothes us with Righteousness that we may Live Before Him; that is, that we may See Him.
He has ALREADY Cleansed our sins and Given us a Righteousness by which we may Live in His Presence.
