When we repent, we get a robe? What good is a robe? It's not like a bathrobe. It's called the Robe of Righteousness. Another name is Breastplate of Righteousness. We are told over and over in the scriptures to repent. But, what is repentance??? Imagine only having one set of clothes and no way to wash them. Your shirt and pants or dress would get grubby. You would have dirt and ketchup and chocolate and who knows what on your clothes in a few days. If you keep wearing those clothes without washing them, they would get stinky!! by Kylie Thompson, age 7 Picture When we sin, it's like having dirty stinking clothes that cannot be washed. Ewwww! Remember the example of our hearts being a garden? Weeds, bugs and disease can hurt the garden of our hearts. God loves us SOOOOOO much that He doesn't want us to be unprotected or be away from Him. In the Lord's Prayer it says: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Do you know what that means? ----------------------------------------------- So, do you have any bugs or disease or are you wearing the Robe of Righteousness? Here's a story that shows how much Jesus loves us and will forgive us. VIDEO Learn the next verse in the Kingdom Kid Pledge Don't forget to keep praising the Lord for his goodness and love!! Then ask Him if there are any bugs or disease of sin that you need to get rid of. He might bring something into your memory. You conscience might remind you of something that keeps bothering you. Ask God for forgiveness and get rid of it!! Put on that ROBE of RIGHTEOUSNESS!! Keep praying!!
