Day 15 – “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

I love the snow, what about you?  I’m not talking about a blizzard or sleet, but that perfect snow…the kind that actually sticks to the ground and rolls up to make a snowman.  Living in Arkansas, I haven’t been in a perfect snow very many times.  I do remember a huge snow around 1985 as a kid.  I think it snowed for a couple days and we got more than a couple inches on the ground.  I remember building a snowman, making snow angels, and my mom making snow ice cream.  I read on a weather website recently that there is less than a 1% chance of snow on Christmas where I live.  You know what that tells me, there’s a chance!  I’m not sure, but I think it snowed on Christmas a couple of times in my life, and I’m hoping for a white Christmas this year.

Did you know the word snow is in the bible over twenty times?  One of my favorite is Psalm 51:7.  It says, “Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.”  The forgiveness of God makes our lives whiter than snow!  Jesus’ name means “He shall save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).  I’ve been snow skiing a few times and it’s so white and bright that you have to wear sunglasses or risk hurting your eyes.  There is such a thing called snow blindness.  The glare coming off the fresh snow can reflect 90% of the UV radiation.  While the reflection off the snow can be a bad thing, the reflection off a life made white as snow through the forgiveness of Jesus is a very good thing.  My next favorite bible verse about snow is Isaiah 1:18.   It says, ““Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”  Thank you Jesus for your forgiveness.  While there may not be much of a chance of snow at Christmas this year, there’s a 100% chance of Jesus forgiving our sins.

Question:  What do you need to ask Jesus to forgive you from?  Why  not ask Jesus for His forgiveness and cleansing today?
