Recently I was watching television when one of those cheap commercials came on the channel. The kind that does not fill the screen, and the lighting is not well done. Even the graphics and dialogue were cheesy. The pitch began an offering of a website to clean your personal computer. Considering we now live in a mobile world to it may speak to its irrelevance. Does anybody really have a personal computer anymore? The product promises to clean up your dirty old computer’s system and make it fast again. I admit that from time to time, I have suffered from a slow computer and it seemed like the service was legit.
I began to wonder how a much better offer would be to provide a way to clean the heart and soul of people. It seems like every now and then we can use a good cleaning of our lives. Actually we don’t need to go to a website because God promises that He has the best way to clean us up. If we are willing to repent, and believe in His son Jesus, confessing our sins knowing that He is faithful and just to forgive our sins then we can be as clean as we can get.
Listen to what Isaiah writes in chapter 1 verse 18 and following, “Come now, 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 become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
To repeat that phrase it says, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.” God provided a way to become clean and it’s not through a website, but through a relationship with Jesus Christ. You must believe in Jesus and receive Him into your life to experience it.
John upon seeing Jesus said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away this sin of the world.” Do you know this Jesus? Do you have a personal relationship with Him? If not, you can by crying out to Him in your time of need and be changed! If you do know Him then you should confess your sins and He will make you as clean as the freshly fallen snow as well.
Isaiah 1:18 – New International Version (NIV)
18 “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.
