Like A Stick Snatched From The Fire by Pastor Daniel

Zechariah 3:1-4
Then the angel showed me Jeshua the high priest standing before the angel of the lord.  The Accuser, Satan, was there at the angel’s right hand, making accusations against Jeshua.  And the lord said to Satan, “I, the lord, reject your accusations, Satan.  Yes, the lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you.  This man is like a burning stick that has been snatched from the fire.”
Jeshua’s clothing was filthy as he stood there before the angel.  So the angel said to the others standing there, “Take off his filthy clothes.”  And turning to Jeshua he said, “See, I have taken away your sins, and now I am giving you these fine new clothes.”
God saw through the dirt that covered you, through the stains and the mud.  He saw something worth cleaning.  He overruled all accusation against you, removed your garment of sin, and clothed you in heaven's finest.

Do you see?  You who have overheard Satan's accusations and taken them to heart.  You who see your filthy appearance as unfit for anything clean.  You who listen to Satan's lies about you instead of God's truth over you.  You who see yourself so low.  God did not just clothe you - He gave you fine clothes.  He gave you His very best.  He sent His perfect and spotless Son to take away the sins of the world.  You are clothed in the very righteousness of God, and that is all He sees, as it should be all that you see.  Anything otherwise is accusation.  All else is to be rejected.  You are made new.


God doesn't see you the way Satan sees you, or even the way you see you; He sees you through the lens of Jesus, who died to wash away your sins.  Any thought you think of or entertain otherwise is an accusation against you.  An accusation is a charge against someone, saying that they have done something wrong.  As our judge, God knows the penalty has already been paid for our sins, so all accusations are rejected.  We are like "a burning stick snatched from the fire."  Doomed but ransomed.  Unworthy but redeemed.
