DONE: You Have Been Washed Clean

“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.
          (Isaiah 1:18)

Sin. You probably don’t need me to tell you it’s an issue in your life. After all, we all struggle with it. Every one of us.

No matter how good we try to be, we’ve all been soiled by the stains of our sin.

When Isaiah wrote these words, he was looking forward to the day when the stains on our souls would be taken care of. When we could finally be cleansed from our sin—permanently.

But he also recognized that we could never make ourselves clean on our own. He knew that no amount of scrubbing, hiding, or justifying would remove the scars of sin from our souls.

Isaiah understood that only Jesus had the power to make us clean.

And today, thanks to His finished work on the Cross, He has.

You see, the moment you placed your trust in Christ, your sins were washed as white as snow.

Not by anything you did.

Not by your striving towards goodness.

Not by your ability to overcome your flaws.

It was solely by the power of Christ’s blood.

And nothing will ever change this. No sin—even the sin you have yet to commit—will ever leave a stain on you again.

Because, as Jesus says in today’s verse—it’s been settled.
