White As Snow

White As Snow



I’m sure most of you have heard about the blizzard going to hit the east coast this weekend. Well, by now it has already hit or is in the process I’m sure. It got me thinking about where it talks in the Bible about white as snow.

Isaiah 1:18 “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 like crimson, they shall become like wool. ESV.

What a wonderful reminder from our God about how if we accept Jesus as our Savior that he’ll wash us as white as snow. We come to him so stained with sin. Our clothing is as red as scarlet. That’s a pretty deep read. So, maybe this is the suspense author in my but when I think of this, I’m thinking of someone being stabbed and the blood flowing.

God sees all of that. Does He run away? No. He runs but it is toward us. It is a healing. One no one else but Jesus can give us. No matter how good we are or good deeds we do.

I’m not sure what made me think of this, but I woke up or I should say while I was awake with my twins last night. They didn’t sleep all night. (Part of their autism, they sometimes don’t sleep or only for an hour or two as a full moon gets close.) This was heavy on my mind. I know God wanted me to write on this and I truly had and still don’t know who it is for.

Isn’t it great the visual that God gave us with snow? This is something we know about, we have at least seen it a picture, even if you’re not in a place where it snows. It is like him wrapping His arms around us and saying, “see that snow out there. I can wash all your sins away, just as white as the snow on the ground.” Amazing.
