Psalm 51:7 “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”
Here in the midwest portion of the United States, we are in the midst of a snowstorm. While many complain of the work it will take to dig out, I have to step back in wonder at how beautiful and marvelous it looks.
Yes, I have had to get up earlier than usual, don my winter gear, and clear paths for walkways and cars to travel. But the thoughts still remain.
God mentions our sins forgiven as the new-fallen snow; untouched, pure, clean, and white.
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
The Lord Jesus’s great sacrifice provides for us not just A way, but the ONLY way to enter Heaven.
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
You may not live in a place or climate where it may snow, but the truth remains. Mankind has been given a path to be made righteous, pure, and clean from the stain of sin.
Today, may we be reminded to meditate on the salvation and the price paid for us. May it also turn into a time of praise and thanksgiving that rises as a sweet savor before our Heavenly Father.
2 Corinthians 2:15-16 “For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?”
Today, let us take time to reflect on the wondrous salvation wrought for us in Jesus Christ. Allow God’s Word to wash over your soul.
Immerse your thoughts in the truth of God’s Word that can raise your spirit, comfort your heart, and cause song and praise to flow from your lips.
May this Sabbath/Sunday be one of joy.
