What's Whiter Than Snow?

February 10, 2010

Have you ever thought about something being whiter than snow? Snow is pretty white, so it’s hard to imagine something that’s whiter than snow, isn’t it?

During the past week 35 to 50 inches of snow have fallen here in Maryland. It’s been beautiful—so white and clean. We’ve shoveled a lot of snow! As we’ve shoveled it, unfortunately the snow has begun to get dirty and not look so white anymore.
I went out and played in the snow, made a snow angel (which I have always wanted to do), thrown snowballs, and stood outside, looked up, and enjoyed feeling snow flakes land on my face.

At one point, not realizing how deep the snow was, I decided to walk around to the back of my house and shovel the snow off my deck. As I was struggling to walk through the knee-deep snow, my husband, Randall, and I got to talking about how white the snow is, and how Jesus can make our sins whiter than snow. Looking at all that white snow, I tried imagining how anything could be whiter than snow when snow is whiter than anything I've ever seen!

Jesus tells us in Isaiah 1:18: "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" (KJV). And David wrote:  "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow” (Psalm 51:7).

So the next time you look at snow, think about how Jesus can make you whiter than snow, no matter what you've done in your life. Jesus wants to clean you up; today ask Him to forgive you.

*Texts credited to KJV are from the King James Version.
