Washed as White as Wool

Today’s Reading: 1 Timothy 1:12-17


Isaiah 1:18 — “Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.”


God promises to wash away sins. One day as Saul was going to Damascus to arrest Christians, Jesus appeared in blinding glory to save Saul from the delusion of religious sin. Looking back on his life, Paul (formerly Saul) called himself a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent opponent of Christ—the worst of sinners. But God in His mercy saved Saul by grace so that many more sinners could know the love of God.


Every one of Saul’s sins were washed away by the blood of Jesus on that day he met Christ. The “foremost” sinner was made as pure and innocent as a newborn lamb. Once stained crimson by guilt and shame, Saul was cleansed as white as wool.


Imagine yourself dressed from head to toe in white clothing and falling into a vat of kimchi juice. Your clothes would be stained through and through by that red liquid. That was our condition before we met Christ and received His grace for salvation. 


We were stained and identified by our sins. But then the divine launderer bathed us in mercy and forgiveness, love and grace, and made us a white as snow. Our identity was no longer the sin we were in, but the Son we are in!


Blood stains are difficult to remove from clothing. Somehow, the blood of Jesus can wash away sins and make us white, pure, and clean in God’s eyes. Thank you, Jesus, for shedding Your innocent blood to wash away all of our sins so that we can have a relationship with our holy God.

“Thank you, Jesus, for shedding Your innocent blood to wash away all of our sins so that we can have a relationship with our holy God.”


The biggest change I have seen since I began fellowship with God is that I have started to think more positively and see the world from God's perspective.

If I have a lot of conflict with people around me and have problems with team spirit with others, I need to examine whether the word of God is really working within me. I must allow the Lord to come into me and work.

Am I negative about everything? Fellowship with the Lord!
