I have been watching snow fall gently all day in our corner of the world. Everything looks so pure and white now that the brown grass and earth are wearing their winter coat. It reminds me of the verse in the Bible that speaks about forgiveness.
"Come let us reason together," says the Lord.
Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow.
Thought they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool."
Scarlet....Crimson...like blood...Jesus' blood shed for our sins. Wool....Snow..clean.....no stains left from our sins. Absolutely pure. Forgiven. Isn't it amazing? We are so blessed with the precious gift of forgiveness and the privilege to forgive others. As we walk through Advent in preparation for Christmas, let us rejoice in the birth of a baby, God's son, our Savior who was born on one Holy Night, and who grew up to die for our sins. Though our sins were scarlet, they are now white as snow. Thank you Jesus.
