It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking we could never be as faithful as Jesus.

But what set Him apart from the world was not simply His divine origin or supernatural powers. For if He had possessed those yet not lived according to the Isaiah 11:5 Messianic prophecy regarding His nature, you and I would have had no hope of eternal life.

Why? Because He would have failed to live the righteous life that qualified Him as the spotless sacrificial Lamb.

But Isaiah 11:5 doesn’t speak only about the future Savior.

It also speaks to us as to how we can live more like Him.

“He will wear righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment.”

As you and I put on the covering of truthfulness as our first garment for living — the foundational element behind all of our interactions with others — we’ll be more able to display the righteousness that holds our lives together.

Please make the putting on of truth part of your “getting dressed” each day. Plan for a devotional time early in the morning. Jesus certainly did and look at how it helped Him.

The rest of your day will be more likely to display the righteousness God desires to see and those around you need to see.
