The Lord God made garments of skin
for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

Genesis 3:21

Flimsy fig-leaves were woefully inadequate. God had to clothe them. An innocent victim had to die, so that their guilt could be covered. This illustrates the inadequacy of self-righteousness.
No one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law (Rom.3:20).
We need God to clothe us with the righteousness of Christ.
