Come As You Are | Christmas Sketch | 15.12.19

At the Christmas party Grant and Dave performed a sketch for us! Grant was inspired to write the play from the story in Genesis where Joseph was locked up in the dungeon by Pharaoh. The day that Pharaoh heard that Joseph could interpret his troubling dreams, he called for Joseph. But Joseph was required to get dressed into fine clothes before he could stand before the king. This story contrasts with the gospel. Jesus is King, and he calls men and women everywhere to Himself. But he does not require that they clean up their act first and appear before him ‘clean’ and ‘righteous’. (While we were still sinners Christ died for us). Rather, he takes us as we are and clothes us in garments of righteousness.
