Lesson 268: His Robes For Mine, Pt.2

The 1st verse of the hymn “His Robes for Mine” describes “The Great Exchange”.

Christ was made sin for us, so that believers can be declared righteous in Him. The righteousness of Christ is credited (imputed) to the account of each person who trusts in Him. Rom.3:19-4:8 The Bible pictures this as an exchange of garments. Matt.22:1-14; Rev.7:9-14
 
Verse 1: His robes for mine: O wonderful exchange!
Clothed in my sin, Christ suffered ‘neath God’s rage.
Draped in His righteousness, I’m justified.
In Christ I live, for in my place He died.
 
2 Cor.5:21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
 
Phil.3:9 be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.
 
Isa.61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness
 
Zech.3:3-4 Joshua was standing before the angel, clothed with filthy garments. And the angel said to those who were standing before him, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” To Joshua he said “Behold I have taken your iniquity away from you; I will clothe you with pure garments

About This Series

The goal of this series is to become more useful in serving the Lord Jesus Christ, as an instrument in the Redeemer's hand. The theme verses for the series are Ephesians 4:22-24, Philemon 11, 2 Timothy 2:21

- to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds,
- and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
- Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful to you and to me.
- Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work
