Thank God for Wite Out
Mom has been writing out Christmas cards and making address mistakes. I’m pretty sure her address book is out of date, scratched out and scribbled on. She has the infamous torn out address labels from past received letters and cards tucked in the front cover.
The other day she made an error I felt was in need of correcting. She’s put a Mrs. where the Mrs. had passed away a year or so ago. She’d forgotten, but when I saw that I started hunting for the Wite Out.
Correcting her errors she’d said, “thank God for Wite Out.” I chucked, but then I immediately saw the correlation between Wite Out and the Lord’s saving blood of Jesus making our sins white as snow. Jesus is God’s Wite Out.
The worship song White As Snow comes to mind. The lyrics, “though my sins were as scarlet, Lord I know that I’m clean and forgiven, White as snow.”
Can you think of a better analogy of the blood of Jesus?
There is nothing more pure in color than snow. Yet, the Bible tells us that the Blood of Jesus, which should in all practicality stain, makes our sins white as snow.
18 “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.
Its a beautiful thing, because its impossible for us to do on our own. But with God all things are possible.
26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
If you’ve not ever experienced the saving grace of the Lord Jesus, I encourage you to look for Him this Christmas. You can start by reading Luke chapter 2. There you will see the beginning of God’s Grace for man in the face of a new born baby.
If you’ve known the Lord, but have gotten distracted by the trials of life and let the true meaning of Christmas slip from your heart and mind, I encourage you to read Luke chapter 2 as well. Get a new perspective this Christmas. A perspective of Hope, Peace and Joy.
I also encourage you to simply talk to the Lord. Prayer doesn’t have to be fancy or wordy, it just has to be honest. Genuine.
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
