Memory Verse Monday – Week 11

“Come now, and 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 be as wool. Isaiah 1:18

 

This is a prophecy made to Judah while they were in their rebellion with God. He calls them sinful nation, evildoers and corrupters. (v4) They have turned away backward. Their burnt offerings of rams and cattle were becoming just lip service. They troubled God and made Him weary. In spite of all this, God, being full of grace, offers a way.

 

Come now, He says, so we can reason and sort this out. Whatever your sin maybe, however corrupt your actions maybe, God has a provision to make them go away. We see a couple of similitudes here. Scarlet and crimson are used to refer to the deep color of red almost the color of blood. On the contrary, snow and wool, which basically refers to the undyed wool that is pure, are as white as white can be!

For Judah, this means, turning from their hypocrisy and disobedience and revering their God. (v19) For us, the provision was made at the cross, where mercy was great and grace was free. Do you believe in the atoning sacrifice of God? If so, your sins can be washed away and you can be whiter than snow. (Psalm 51:7) If you want to learn more about how you can be saved, click here.

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.

    Your post is so timely. I’m typing from Central California with my air conditioner blowing while I hear it’s snowing in the midwest and east coast. Crazy world, but that oddly-timed snow storm is what covers a world stuck in the gray and browns of sin and makes it pure and white. Love your picture and your thoughts!
    Thanks for linking up with #InspireMeMonday

  • Please send the sunshine along our way! But I do agree with you, with all its beauty, snow is also a reminder of our hearts, washed clean by His precious blood!
