“His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:” Matthew 28:3Text — Matthew 28:1-7
On the day Jesus rose from the dead, the angel of the a Lord descended from heaven and came to roll back the stone from the door and sat upon it. We read that His cloth was white as snow. This means that He was pure and clean on every side. To be white as snow like the angel, you have to be pure within and without. A little stain on your garment will stand as a barrier between you and God. God is holy and anyone that desires to be in a loving relationship with God must be holy.
Holiness of life is not optional; it is a must for all heaven-bound Christians. To be made holy, a sinner must first repent of all sins and accept Jesus as personal Saviour and Lord. This is known as salvation or the first work of grace.
After that, you must go a step higher to experience the sanctification of your heart. This you can do by, developing a strong desire and thirst for holiness. Then pray sincerely and believe that God will do it for you. Wait patiently to receive the total cleansing of your heart, soul and spirit. Take a step of faith now, as you pray.
1 Thessalonians 4:3,4
