Scarlet to White. . . .

I woke up this morning to a covering of snow on the ground. It covered the bushes and what is left of the autumn leaves and flowers. On our way home from China, I sat next to a young lady who, along with her entire family, was moving to Chicago. I couldnt help but think about her when I saw the snow. She had never seen snow before. I dont know if it snowed in Chicago or not, but if it did, then this young lady for the first time in her life witnessed the beauty of white glistening snow.

Snow reminds me of a verse in Isaiah. "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow" It is reassuring to know that Jesus is always with us. Though we may be far away from Him, He will draw us near. In this verse the word scarlet is the color of blood. The ultimate sacrifice......Jesus Blood.... for the salvation of us all. White.......the color of purity. Jesus can and will change you if you allow Him into your heart.
