"Come now, let's settle this," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool."
I love the first part of this verse. Some of the other versions say let's discuss this, let's argue this out, let's settle the matter. How cool is that?!?! The Creator of the Universe invites us to dialogue with him, to hash this matter out. He wants us to understand this. He wants our hearts to grasp this knowledge. He wants us to realize the power of his forgiveness.
And as breathtakingly beautiful as the snow is, I have to say dialoguing with the very one who made the snow and who takes my sins and makes them as white as the snow is even more beautiful.
Beautifully pure. Beautifully forgiven. Beautifully HIS.
