Isaiah 1:18 (New International Version)
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
If we look at these words and simply pass by them without thinking about their implications for our present and future we are probably missing something truly beautiful. Remember, God the Father is the one who is affronted, who has been sinned against, and yet He offers this promise of the olive branch of peace.
Red perhaps, and most probably, means the blood guiltiness of you and I, and the whiteness of snow the purity for the forgiven ones. Wool, specifically from a lamb is probably the softest, and most comforting thing to be clothed in. More appropriately the blood of Jesus the son of God shed for the remission of our sins and the purity of His sacrifice are certainly intimated here. Any way you look at it we are blessed beyond any possible measure by the grace of our Lord Jesus, our Christ and his Father.
