White as Snow...

Isaiah 1:18
"Come let us settle this,"
Says the Lord.
"Though your sins are scarlet,
they will be as white as snow;
though they are crimson red,
they will be like wool."

In these verses of the chapter of Isaiah, the Lord is talking to the people of Jerusalem. They are the holy city, his holy people but they were turning from their once righteous ways. In Isaiah 1:21 it says, "The faithful town, what an adulterous she has become! She was once full of justice. Righteousness once dwelt in her, but now murders!"

The Lord is telling the people of Jerusalem that he can bring them back from that sin. He can forgive the things they have done, the mistakes they have made. He has the power to wash away their blood stained, scarlet colored sins and forgive them. They will be washed clean, white as snow.

Some of us.... well... all of us are guilty of sin. Every... single... day we sin in one for or another. We are not perfect, and God didn't create us to be perfect. No one can be perfect. But, he is telling us that though we may fall short of perfection, we will sin, he will forgive us of it all. That doesn't mean go do what you want to do and all will be forgiven. If we live our best lives, doing our best to live our lives according to God's word, he will forgive us when we fall short. 

We all have our pasts. Some more soaked in crimson red stains than others. But, we are all guilty in one form or another. The Lord is the only one who can fully forgive us of our sins, our mistakes, the things we may hold deep inside and that maybe no one else even knows. What a wonderful heavenly father we have that can forgive us of those mistakes!! Thank you Lord! Thank you for forgiving us of our worst mistakes and washing us white as snow! Praise God!
