On Saturday, we received a true New England winter storm. The region received between 3-9 inches. We got around 3-5 inches at our house.
There is something beautiful and peaceful about new fallen snow. It’s not quite so pretty when it starts turning brown from the sand, salt, and traffic after a few days. But fresh powder is quite a sight.
Watching the snow fall reminded me of how God compares forgiveness to snow in Isaiah 1:18.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”
When God forgives our sins, he cleanses us completely. He doesn’t merely cover our sins with a dusting of snow, he transforms us and makes our sin as white as snow.
