Washed, Anointed, and Clothed
Ruth 3:3
Wash yourself therefore, and anoint you, and put your raiment on you, and get you down to the floor…

Need we explain this washing, anointing, and clothing? Need we point to the only fountain for sin? Need we say that the holy anointing oil, which consecrates the believer in Jesus a priest and king unto God, is His own blessed Spirit? Must we define the raiment to be that robe of Divine and human righteousness combined wherewith each soul is invested which rejects its own filthy rags?

(C. F. Hall.)
