White as Snow

What a blessing to see this beautiful snow that God has showered down upon us this day. It is something that we have longed to see for a while. As I look out my window and see everything covered my heart was filled with joy. I felt like a child again this morning running around with the camera, taking pictures, and feeling the cold. It was such a beautiful sight to see. But my heart did not stop there. My mind was called to 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."

White as snow! White is pure, bright, spotless, innocent- that is what my sins have become. They once were counted against me. I was scarlet- impure, vile, filthy, and unrighteous- but God through His grace has covered me and made me white as snow. All my sins are covered. That is a more beautiful picture than I have ever seen or could imagine. As if God has taken a blanket of pure white and covered me forever. Our snow will be gone in a few hours and forgotten about, but my snow that covers me is forever!

What a blessing it is to see snow during the winter time! Thank you so much for your encouragement. You have pointed us to the Lord and reminded us that His love endures forever!

For we know that Jesus has fulfilled this promise of God! He has accomplished this glorious promise - to deal with sin and death - by the offering of His own body and blood and the cross of Calvary as a substitute in our place!

Thank you for this glorious thought!
