Over and over in the times described in the Old Testament of the Bible, the Lord pursues His people with an offer of mercy, forgiveness, and cleansing. He says, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool” (Isaiah 1:18 NIV). No matter what they had done, He expressed His genuine willingness to wipe their slate clean and allow them to start over.
He offers the same cleansing to you and me. If you’ve not yet begun to follow Him, He offers you a new life, a life that’s free of the guilt of your past, the bondage of your present, or the fear of your future. If you’ve been following Him already, but your steps have wandered or you’ve given in to things that tempt you to take your eyes off Jesus, He offers to forgive you and to purify you from all that leads you away from Him.
What’s the common doorway for these offers? It goes back to the beginning of that verse in Isaiah, “Come now, let us reason together …” He’s just waiting for you to ask Him for what He offers … and when you do, He’ll remove every stain from your heart, mind, and life, until you’re as white as fresh fallen snow!
