Goodness Won For Him by Another

Not only was Joshua’s sin and guilt removed (Zechariah 3), but he was then dressed in the perfect and spotless garments of a goodness won for him by another.  With that move, the story goes from being wonderful to being spectacularly joyful.  Tullian Tchividijian calls this “the hilarity of unconditional grace.”  It is unimaginable and beyond reason that God could love filthy sinners so much.
