Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Bring Your Sin to God
This promise begins with an invitation. God invites you to come to Him with your sin. When you sin, the last person you want to talk to is God. So often, when you sin, you hide from God. You feel guilty and shameful and are afraid to come into His presence. Even in your sin, God invites you to come and fellowship with Him.
It’s as if God is saying, “Let’s get together and talk about this sin thing.” I have a solution for your sin. There is nothing you have done that I haven’t dealt with before. God knows your guilt and shame. He invites you to come and experience forgiveness. You can carry your sin or allow Him to forgive and cleanse you from your sin. When you come to Him, he offers forgiveness and cleansing.
Scarlet and Crimson
I love the comparison in the second part of this promise. God uses two colors to describe your sin; scarlet and crimson. These two colors of deep red were used to dye and stain cloth. Sin stains your heart and your spirit. Only God can take a heart, stained blood red, and make it as white as snow. No matter how deep, ugly, and dark your sin is, it can be forgiven, forgotten, and cleansed. God can take your sin and change it from the deep red of crimson to the pure white of snow.
Through the blood of Christ, God invites you to live in the forgiveness of His love. Your heart can be purified, cleansed, and restored.
Look at that promise again.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. – Isaiah 1:18
Make these confessions.
God invites me to bring my sin to Him.
God not only forgives my sin but makes my heart pure again.
As I come to God, I find cleansing of my sin.
No matter how dark my sin, God can make it as white as snow.
In Jesus Name,
Instead of running from God when you sin, come to Him with your sin. He will forgive your sin and cleanse your heart.
