White As Snow

winter sceneIt was snowing the day I was born in Racine, Wisconsin. Flakes of white silently falling as I cried loudly to announce my arrival. A diverse individual created by God different from anyone else just as God makes each snowflake unique from another. I am sure that is why I love to see the dried leaves of fall covered with a fresh glistening blanket of paper white.

The snow reminds me of my sin. God took my blackened dead heart and gave me a new heart. He made it alive in Christ. The sin still ever-present but now clothed in Christ’s righteousness. He washed me white as snow.

David prayed it:

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7 ESV

To Israel God proclaimed it:

Come now, 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. Isaiah 1:18 ESV

Leon Olguin sings of it:

White As Snow

White as snow white as snow

Though my sins were as scarlet

Lord I know Lord I know

That I’m clean and forgiven

Through the power of your blood,

Through the wonder of your love,

Through faith in you

I know that I can be

White as snow white as snow

Though my sins were as scarlet

Lord I know Lord I know

That I’m clean and forgiven

Through the power of your blood,

Through the wonder of your love,

Through faith in you I know

that I can be

White as snow.

Yes, I love snow but most of all the gospel that washes me white as snow.
