“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.
Our sins are washed away when we place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Our sins no longer remains because of His precious blood that was shed at Calvary. Under the old covenant which was based upon the law the blood of bulls and goats could not atone for the sins of the people. Day after day sacrifices needed to be made because the blood of animals could not fully atone for the sins of humanity.
But through Jesus Christ our sins have been atoned for. Jesus has taken the penalty that we deserved and has offered us the gift of salvation. Daily the gospel message goes forth into the earth and the Lord is continually knocking on the hearts of people. He has given all people a freewill whether to choose to follow Him and make Him Lord and Savior, or choose to live this life for themselves and the selfish desires of this world.
Eternal life is not based upon our works nor our performance. It is based upon faith in the Son of God alone, Christ Jesus. As we walk in authentic faith with the Lord we will follow the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives which will produce the fruit of the Spirit and will accomplish the works that God created us for. May our hearts daily be focused upon Jesus and what He has accomplished for us at Calvary. May we simply use every day to glorify and magnify His awesome and mighty name.
