Christ puts a richer robe on his bride: 'He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness' (Isa. 61:10). In this robe, God looks on us as if we had not sinned. This robe is as truly ours to justify us, as it is Christ's to bestow on us. This robe not only covers but adorns. Having on this robe, we are reputed righteous, not only as righteous as angels, but as righteous as Christ: 'that we might be made the righteousness of God in him' (2 Cor. 5:21).
