Covered in Fresh Snow

As I watch the snow fall outside my window, I notice all it is covering up. Just yesterday, my sister remarked that nothing really looked beautiful. The trees were gray and free of leaves. The little snow that was on the ground had already been trampled and made dirty. The world was in need of something new. Then comes the fresh snow. Crisp. Light. Perfect little puffs. It falls from the sky in clumps, making quick work of covering the ground. Clean. Pure. The gray trees are becoming white. The ground doesn’t have a single track on it. The Bible talks about us being made clean like snow. Think about the things we have done to get dirty, the wrongs we have committed. And then think of being covered in snow. Being made like snow. That’s what Jesus does when He forgives us. He gave Himself up for us so that He could wash away all our wrongdoing and make us new (Ephesians 5:25-27). God can truly take what is dirty and make it beautiful and clean. And He is willing to. With each one of us. • Emily Acker • When do you feel dirty and in need of washing (either physically or spiritually)? • Anyone who puts their trust in Jesus can be made clean. What did Jesus do to make this possible? (See our “Know Jesus” page.) • Consider taking a moment to imagine yourself becoming as pure as the fresh snow. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7 (NIV)
