If we could peer into heaven and see that great number of departed and glorified saints, I think we would see Abraham and his nephew, Lot, Joshua and Rahab the harlot, Samuel and Samson, the penitent thief and the glorious Apostle Paul, all dressed in the same raiment--that beautiful garment of salvation, the righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ which was freely given them (Isaiah 61:10). After all, nothing less will make the sinner acceptable in God's sight and qualified for heaven! AND WHAT IS THERE MORE? Can anything be added to the righteousness of Christ? Can anything make the sinner more approved of God? The Lord Jesus Christ is ALL the believer's justifying righteousness (1 Cor. 1:30,2 Cor.5:21).
