But each color bears great significance. The deep sapphire blue represents the foundation of the New Jerusalem (Isaiah 54:11) and the throne of God (Ezekiel 1:26). Purple represents royalty and wealth, it is the color of the robe given to Christ to mock him as king of the Jews (Luke 16:19). And scarlet represents a sacrifice, the blood of Christ, but also our sins (Isaiah 1:18).
The linen portion of the garment was equally significant, symbolizing the righteousness of the saints. In Revelation 19:8, the Bride of Christ, the church, is given fine linen. It's significant to me that Christ provides this for his bride, it is not based on our works, but on His finished work on the cross.
I am so thankful that God prepared these works for us, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10). My prayer is that I would recognize the works He has prepared for ME, and not try to step into other believers' shoes.
