DAILY READINGS: Deut. 18:9-19:21; Joel 1:1-20; Luke 11:37-54

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool…” Isaiah 1:18, NKJV

Scarlet is a fixed and permanent colour. It is actually the biblical colour for sin, not black. There is no power in chemistry that can take out the scarlet colour without destroying the fabric. However, what is impossible in chemistry is possible in grace. Our Saviour’s work at Calvary can remove sins of deepest dye. As a lost sinner, have you responded to the Lord’s invitation to “Come now”—not tomorrow, next week, or next month, but today? —W. Ross Rainey

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow. —Elvina M. Hall
