White As Snow

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."
Isaiah 1:18
~~~~~
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.

Hi Renee,

I do sense that joy as we inch closer and closer to Christmas. I am grateful that Unto us a Son is given. Through Him, we are cleansed from our sins; His blood washes us whiter than snow.

Thank you for sharing a post with a beautiful message.

Blessings and peace.

Snow is so beautiful and white and pure. I remember the one winter I spent in Colorado and the beautiful snow there. Now I'll just have to be content with snow on my computer. LOL

It's really incomprehensible -- we just have to believe and receive.

Thank you for sharing the true meaning of Christmas.
We had flurries on Thanksgiving day, but my children (and I) are yet awaiting that first real blanket of white snow.
How lovely.

First of all, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your background!

Great post. I am so glad we are washed white as snow. I was thinking today when I sent out my CHRISTMAS E-CARDS that JESUS is the gift this year... and every year.

Thanks for a beautiful post, Renee.
