July 7, 2021 – Zechariah 3

A vision of Joshua the high priest before the Lord, and Satan standing there to accuse him. Satan is always trying to accuse us. Apparently, Joshua was not without blame; he was “clothed with filthy garments” (3:4). The angel, there before the Lord, spoke: “Remove the filthy garments from him . . . Behold, I have taken your iniquity away from you, and I will clothe you with pure vestments” (3:4).


Reminds one of Romans 8, doesn't it? “Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died – more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” (Romans 8:33-35) Nothing can separate us from God's love. Let Satan accuse. Let the world accuse. We are in Christ, and we have his righteousness! Good, no, great news!


O Love that will not let me go,

I rest my weary soul in thee.

I give thee back the life I owe,

that in thine ocean depths its flow

may richer, fuller be. -- George Matheson, 1882

We don’t always get to do what we want to do even when we think an action will be good and moral.  Consider David:  “Now when David lived in his house, David said to Nathan the prophet, ‘Behold, I dwe
