The Priest With Dirty Clothes

Have you ever read this book? It is most excellent and a great Christmas gift for kiddos! It is Libertys new favorite story. She wants to read it all the time. I also noticed in the book that they live near a lake called Loch Lomond in Scotland! How funny that Matt and Dana just visited there last week! This book is based on Zechariah 3:1-5. In this passage, Joshua, as High Priest of Israel, is standing before the Angel of the Lord wearing dirty clothes. The Angel of the Lord speaks to Joshua, telling him that he has been cleansed of his sin, and then replaces Joshua's dirty clothes with beautiful, clean garments. This is just how Christ cloaks us in His "garment" of righteousness so that we may stand faultless, or clean, before the throne of God. It is so awesome and your kids will love it too! Thanks for buying it for us mom!
