Have you ever imagined a “sit down” with God? Just you and God. Maybe over coffee or something. You know, casual. You could ask Him all your questions and just sit and enjoy His company?
It might go down like this:
“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. “If you consent and obey, You will eat the best of the land; “But if you refuse and rebel, You will be devoured by the sword.” Truly, the mouth of the Lord has spoken. (Isaiah 1:18-20 NASB)
This is God laying it out pure and simple. In fact, it doesn’t get any more simple. It doesn’t get any more beautiful.
First He says “Let us.” I love that! God says “Let us reason this out. I don’t want you to be confused! I want you to get it!”
Though our sins stain us, if we but obey, they’ll be as pure as snow. Stained! Once something is stained, it’s ruined. You usually throw it out. But God can remove the stain. And not only that, he can make it better than before! Whiter and purer than it ever could be on its own!
By the way, that “sit down” you are imagining? It can happen any time you want. All you gotta do is call on His name. He’s ready for you. He’s wanting to clear all the confusion you may have. He wants you to get it.
He desires a sit down with you even more than you desire one with Him. Let that sink in for a minute.
Yes. I know, it’s overwhelming. But it’s true.
May God’s Love be with you
