They Shall Be White as Snow
"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."
Maybe the reason people get so excited about the snow is because it is a beautiful picture of our God. Most obviously, it is white and beautiful. The bible tells us that our sins make us like crimson, but because of Christ's sacrifice we can be made as white as snow. Second, it is so gentle and beautiful while at the same time it can be dangerous. It also can cause people to stop their plans. God's presence calls us to stop and admire, praise, worship, and love Him. All too often we don't stop because we don't recognize Him. I admit to being guilty as well. God demands our worship, and our attention. There is nothing greater than being at His feet and there is no higher calling than to be His servant. Instead of going along with my day as God's presence calls to me, I will stop and acknowledge His greatness. Let the wonder, gentility, and strength of the snow be a reminder of our wonderful Lord.
