White As Snow

Yesterday we had (as I am sure some of you have had) a March snowstorm that lasted through the night and deposited six inches of snow on this area. The ground really looks beautiful when covered with snow, as the death and hibernation of the plants is covered with a perfect white blanket. 

Even though snow is not to common of a occurrence in the Middle Eastern areas, the Bible still mentions it twenty-three times. As the snow blots out the sickly brown grass, the blood of Jesus wipe away the the blackness of our sins.

"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow." -Psalm 51:7

“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." -Isaiah 1:18
