This is Gods Message: “If your sins are blood-red, they’ll be snow-white. If they’re red like crimson, they’ll be like wool. Isaiah 1:18
God can remove sin from our lives. We don’t need to suffer the consequences of our past forever.
Seeing red can be worrying, dangerous. Failing to obey red traffic lights can be fatal. Proverbs 20:1 says “Wine makes you mean, beer makes you quarrelsome— a staggering drunk is not much fun.” Red cars are not the most popular . There is something mystical attached to the color red. We have all seen red with an eye of fascination at some time.
God has directed our attention to the giving substance: blood:
Placed on Jewish doors at Passover Exodus 12:13 The blood will serve as a sign on the houses where you live. When I see the blood I will pass over you—no disaster will touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Atonement for sin Leviticus 17:11 I have provided the blood for you to make atonement for your lives on the Altar; it is the blood, the life, that makes atonement.
It is by looking to Jesus Christ in faith, and seeing His rich red blood for remission of our sins that we begin to live. 1 John 1:7 If we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin. Safety, certainty, security and eternity all wrapped up in this God that provided a red-blood stream. There is no alternative to this seeing red.
What The Bible Says
“I’ve wiped the slate of all your wrongdoings. There’s nothing left of your sins. Come back to me, come back. I’ve redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:22
Where is the god who can compare with you— wiping the slate clean of guilt, Turning a blind eye, a deaf ear, to the past sins of your purged and precious people? You don’t nurse your anger and don’t stay angry long, for mercy is your specialty. That’s what you love most. And compassion is on its way to us. You’ll stamp out our wrongdoing. You’ll sink our sins to the bottom of the ocean. Micah 7:18-19
I’ve been out of step with you for a long time, in the wrong since before I was born. What you’re after is truth from the inside out. Enter me, then; conceive a new, true life. Soak me in your laundry and I’ll come out clean, scrub me and I’ll have a snow-white life. Psalms 51:5-7
- Being saved means your stain of guilt has been washed away – your gilt is gone – you have been given a clean slate,
- Being saved means you have received God’s mercy.
Ephesians 2:8 Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish!
