As White As Snow

"Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."  Isaiah 1:18

Have you ever really looked at newly fallen snow?  It is truly amazing how white snow is - blinding white at times.  I especially enjoy staring at snow in the moonlight - a sparkling wonder. No man-made glitter can glisten, twinkle and shimmer like moonlit snow does.  Newly fallen snow is so utterly clean looking.

Scarlet & crimson were dyes used in ancient times.  These colors are deep red and It was impossible to get fabric white again after being dyed scarlet or crimson.  Even in modern times there are certain stains that are impossible to make white again.  The stain in this verse is our sins and God has cleaned our soul.  Our sins have been washed away and our soul has been made as white as snow through the saving blood of Jesus Christ.

Let's praise and thank our heavenly Father for making our souls as white as snow.
