A Walk Through the Park
On my way walking to the train station one snowy eve after work, I stumbled upon this beauty. I love the snow and I love how everything is covered in white. As I am walking through the park trying to get the shot, this scripture verse came to me, “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18. As I am thinking about the scripture verse and how our sins shall be made white as snow. This particular point stood out to me, red is such a powerful color, and the Lord says that, “our sins are like scarlet.” Then, how can the color white wash away red, when red is such a strong color ? I do not have the answer, but I figured this would require a lot of work. Which is what Christ did. He did all the work , He took up the cross, and died for us so that our sins can be made white as snow. He became the penalty for our sins.
Another thing that stood out for me was, my recollection this verse, I remembered it from my childhood Sunday school class. Sometimes we were given a scripture verse to learn and recite the following week. Today, I am grateful for the snow and the memory it brought back to me of my childhood, my Sunday school teacher, and what I learned. Christ’s penalty on the cross covered a multitude of my sins and they are made white as snow.
