Right now, we look forward to this event, but when we are all there, we will be all the more excited about it.
Think about the symbolism.
We are the bride and Christ is the groom. As you plan a wedding months or even years in advance, you are excited then, but when that day finally gets here, isn’t everyone REALLY excited?
That’s how it will be then. The fine linen here does not represent salvation or imputed righteousness.
It says what it symbolizes. (Fine linen represents the good deeds done by the people of God.)
These are acts of faith and righteousness that we do on Earth as a result of being saved.
These acts DON’T save you, but they are what we do and how we live after we are saved.
So, we will be judged for our works. Not for our salvation.
Note that we are already in heaven. So, the works don’t get us in, but they do count after we’re in.
