Snow White

How are you getting on with the recent snowfall? The British Isles have been covered in a blanket of white with snow nearly everywhere. Not so nice for driving, but lovely to look at from the warmth of the house!

337/365:2010 Snowy St Elizabeth's

The snow is even a preacher of the gospel, as it points to the purity of the Lord Jesus (Daniel 7:9, Revelation 1:14), and the purity that is given to filthy sinners when they are cleansed by the precious blood of Jesus:

"Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool." (Isaiah 1:18)

As one hymnwriter puts it:

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Amen!
