A friend and I decided to grab a couple days of skiing this week. As I write this morning, I’m looking out on a wooded meadow with tall evergreens bowed low by freshly fallen overnight snow. Everything is calm, brilliant, and untracked. It’s gloriously pristine.
I’m reminded of David’s prayer of confession in Psalm 51:1–2, 7: “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!…Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”
So deep is the cleansing forgiveness of our God that when we confess our sins, He makes us whiter than snow. As far as the east is from the west, so He removes our sins from us. How beautiful this truth is: No matter how dark our failures, His grace is greater than all our sin!
Remember today, you are loved more than you know, and in Jesus are whiter than snow!
