"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." - Isaiah 1:18
Having moved here from Ohio it is nothing like I've ever seen. Pictures just can't do it justice.
Psalm 19:1 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork."
Every time I look at a mountain I think of our mighty God. His majesty and power are greater than we imagine. He holds the mountains in his hand.
One of the best things about visiting the mountain is the snow. It's beautiful. Clean. Pure. I remember waking up when I was a little girl and seeing our yard covered in a new blanket of snow. I'd pray that we'd have a snow day so we could stay home and play. Nobody wanted to be the first one to mar the perfect white with footprints. So we'd stand on the edge. After a moment we tiptoed out. Carefully staying on the sides. Finally, we'd run joyfully through the crunchy snow.
When I think of purity, innocence, or righteousness, I think of snow. God uses snow as an example of a clean heart. In Psalm 51:7 it says, "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." Romans 3:10 says, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Verse 23 tells us: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
That means we're all sinners, and God because He is holy can't allow sin into heaven. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death." Our sin separates us from God and condemns us to Hell.
God loves us.. He is "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." - John 3:16-17
May I ask you, Have you ever asked Jesus to save you from your sins and become the Lord of your life? If not, then today is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2)
Call on God today. "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." - John 1:12
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13
"Though your sins be as scarlet they shall be white as snow."
If you have any questions, please call us. We'd be glad to pray with you. This is the most important decision you'll ever make. I pray this will be a blessing and help.
