Grace falls like the Snow

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” – Isaiah 1:18

-----

Snow is uniquely white. It holds not color, but reflection. Snow’s purity of white comes not from itself, but from the way the sun’s rays bounce off its crystals.

Jesus came to make us as the snow. He covers the darkness of our sin with the brightness of His light. Christ’s grace falls gently into our despair, bringing us the hope of something new. Instead of reflecting the darkness, we can now reflect Him.

-----

Redeeming Savior, you have brought redemption and hope into this dreary world. Thank you for your grace that falls fresh upon us each day. Make us as snow, reflecting no longer our own darkness, but the Your brightness. May those who interact with us this holiday season see Your light shining through. Amen.

“You came like a winter snow Quiet and soft and slow Falling from the sky in the night To the earth below”


NoticingImmanuelNoticing Immanuel: a series for Advent. Each day starts with noticing: a picture of an everyday Christmas moment. That picture leads to a verse, a meditation, a prayer, and a song. My hope is that when we see those Christmas moments a second time, they will strike us differently. That we might feel the presence of Immanuel this Christmas season, whether we are sitting in quiet or moving in chaos.
